Report: Memphis Grizzlies give Dave Joerger permission to interview with Minnesota, relationship with Front Office soured

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

And the unexpected free fall continues.

A-Pera-ntly no one is safe in Memphis. In fact, it's starting to become hard to tell exactly who is still wanted or wants to be apart of the Grizzlies organization anymore.

This is reaching a full boil, folks. The kind where things start randomly popping out of the pan and burning people.

Chris Wallace had relayed that Joerger was "in place as coach" and getting in touch with the players to control the wildfire; that matters not anymore. Dave Joerger, a man who has firmly planted his family life in Shelby County, is now wanting out of Memphis according to Mr. Zgoda and it sounds like Robert Pera initially cultured the sentiment leading to this new debacle.

So we're left with Chris Wallace as GM and John Hollinger as... the last remaining Twitter account to follow for the Grizzlies FO? Can we even say we have a Front Office at this point?

One hopes that a fresh trickle of solutions starts babbling through the rocks, because so far all we have to mull over is the continued rage-fest of Robert Pera, doing his best impression of Lord Sauron as he tears through the battlefield that is the Memphis Grizzlies.

We will keep you updated here on GBB as this story develops.
