Back in 2018, the Grizzlies were mentioned as a team which could possibly move to Seattle. The city hasn’t had basketball since the SuperSonics were taken from them.
The Grizzlies were the Vancouver Grizzlies from 1995-2001. They became the Memphis Grizzlies in 2002.
Robert Pera bought the Grizzlies in 2012. The team went 32-33 prior to play being suspended due to the coronavirus.
