Grizzlies admit they should have drafted DeJuan BlairPosted by Inside Hoops
Geoff Calkins of the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports:
Mike Heisley admits the Grizzlies blew it on draft night last year.
No, not by taking Hasheem Thabeet with their first pick in the draft. By passing on DeJuan Blair with their second one.
“We should have taken him,” Heisley said. “He was 15th on our list. But sometimes, in the heat of the moment, you get derailed. We got swayed by some discussions with the doctors. This year, we’re going to take the guy who is next on our list or someone is going to have to do a very good job explaining to me why we’re not.”
