Founded in 1995 as an NBA expansion team into Canada, the Grizzlies spent six seasons in Vancouver before relocating to Memphis, Tennessee in 2001. In 2012, Robert Pera became controlling owner of the team.
As one of the youngest franchises in the NBA, the Grizzlies have seen their share of success, making 10 playoff appearances since moving to Memphis with the help of noted players including Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph, Mike Conley, and Tony Allen. The Grizzlies achieved franchise history during the 2013 Playoffs by advancing to the Western Conference Finals as the fifth seed in the Western conference after winning a franchise-record 56 games in the regular season. The Grizzlies are entering their 18th season in Memphis after selecting Jaren Jackson Jr. with the fourth overall pick in the 2018 draft to complement key players such as Conley, Gasol and promising second-year guard Dillon Brooks.
