GM says Grizzlies will spend to keep Morant, core together

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) The Memphis Grizzlies are willing to spend whatever necessary to keep their core together, including signing All-Star guard Ja Morant to a contract extension this offseason.

Zach Kleiman, the Grizzlies' general manager and vice president of basketball operations, made that very clear Sunday. Memphis finished with the second-best record in the NBA and its highest playoff seeding at No. 2 in the Western Conference. Memphis was eliminated in six games by Golden State in the semifinals Friday night.

"We're not going to have any issues paying anyone who we want to pay," Kleiman said of the future. "There's never going to be any issue with retention here."
