The Memphis Grizzlies have removed the interim tag from Chris Wallace and have officially named him as their general manager.
Wallace will now begin a search for an assistant general manager to groom as his eventual successor. The Houston Rockets had success hiring a general-manager-in-waiting with Daryl Morey and the Grizzlies will hope to duplicate this success with Wallace and his yet-to-be-name right-hand man.

The Grizzlies will remove the interim tag from Chris Wallace and hire him as their full-time general manager.

Wallace has been with the team since 2007, and returned to his role as president of basketball operations after the departure of CEO Jason Levien. He will also be in search of an assistant general manager who will eventual supplant him in the future.

The Kings have met with Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace three times to discuss their vacant GM position.

Wallace was reported as the frontrunner previously, and that still seems to be the case. With his role diminished in Memphis, it wouldn't be surprising to see Wallace ultimately tabbed as the Kings choice. Spurs assistant GM Scott Layden as well as former NBA GM Rick Sund are also in the mix.

The Grizzlies have received permission to interview Nets director of basketball operations Milton Lee, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA Today's Sam Amick.

Lee is the head of Brooklyn's analytics department and could replace current GM Chris Wallace in some form. Wallace has been linked as a candidate for the Kings' GM gig and appears on his way out of Memphis after his role was drastically reduced following an ownership change earlier the year. The front-office shuffle included the hiring of former ESPN analyst John Hollinger, who has been heavily involved in the NBA's burgeoning analytics movement.

Chris Wallace and Mike Dunleavy are the "leading candidates" to run the Kings front office, according to the New York Daily News.

Take it with a large grain of salt. Both guys have been mentioned as candidates with Wallace having been reported as a frontrunner previously, but it's too early to make any call with the interview process still rolling on. We'd be shocked if Dunleavy wound up in the front office under Sacramento's new ownership.

Chris Wallace remains in the lead for the Kings GM position, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Wallace, who is currently the favorite, only widened his lead in the race, according to Stein. It sounds like it's only a matter of time until Wallace is named Geoff Petrie's replacement.

Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace has "taken the early lead" in the Kings search for a new head of basketball operations, sources told Marc Stein of ESPN.

Wallace's future is largely in doubt with the Grizzlies, and sources told ESPN that his interview with Kings new owner Vivek Ranadive went so well that it stretched into a second day. Wallace has received "strong backing" from Jerry West, something that Ranadive will likely put solid stock into given their relationship from working together with the Warriors. Geoff Petrie's time as the Kings leader is essentially over. Stein notes that Mike Dunleavy is expected to get an interview as well.
