Tyus Jones finds dead roach in Orlando hotel room

Grizzlies, Tyus Jones

Memphis Grizzlies point guard Tyus Jones found a dead roach in his Orlando hotel room.

The Grizzlies, along with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Philadelphia 76ers, Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers, Dallas Mavericks, Brooklyn Nets and Orlando Magic, are staying at the Grand Floridian hotel at the Walt Disney Campus in Orlando, Florida.

This won’t go over well on social media. After all, Denver Nuggets guard Troy Daniels set NBA Twitter on fire on Tuesday after he posted a picture of the dinner he was eating. It looked like the small meals they serve on airplanes.

Tyus Jones and the Grizzlies are currently in eighth place in the Western Conference standings. When the seeding games start on July 30, Memphis has to hold off the New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns.

In his first season with the Grizzlies after beginning his pro career with his hometown Minnesota Timberwolves, Jones is averaging 7.4 points, 1.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists while shooting 45.9 percent from the field, 37.9 percent from beyond the arc and 74.1 percent from the free-throw line. The former Duke star is rookie Ja Morant’s backup at point guard.

The Grizzlies will face the Blazers, Spurs, Pelicans, Utah Jazz, Thunder, Toronto Raptors, Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks in their eight seeding games. Memphis’ first game is against the Blazers on July 31.
