If you had Jerry Stackhouse in the office pool of who would be the next head coach of the Toronto Raptors, you've lost.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Stackhouse will be joining the Memphis Grizzlies as part of J.B. Bickerstaff's staff.
Stackhouse had spent a season on Dwane Casey's coaching staff with the Raptors before taking the Raptors 905 job. He led the 905 to back-to-back G League Finals berths winning the 2017 championship in the process. He also took home Coach of the Year honours in 2017.
It's been long rumoured that the Raptors were grooming Stackhouse to succeed Casey but after interviewing for the vacant position this spring it appeared the organization would be going in a different direction.
Stackhouse also interviewed for the Charlotte Hornets position but was unsuccessful.
The 43-year-old spent 18 seasons in the NBA and was a two-time all-star. He averaged 16.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists playing for eight different teams.
He never played for the Grizzlies in his career.
