MikeCheck: Morant anointed Grizzlies starting point guard as Jenkins ponders option of pairing rookie No. 2 pick alongside Jones

MEMPHIS – Considering the Grizzlies used the No. 2 pick in June’s draft on Ja Morant and two weeks later spent their entire midlevel exception in free agency on Tyus Jones, it’s safe to say Memphis invested more at point guard than any other position entering this season.

Don’t expect Morant and Jones to be an either-or proposition for first-year coach Taylor Jenkins as he explores his various lineup options in the coming weeks.

Although Jenkins confirmed Morant would emerge from this week’s training camp as the clear-cut starter, he also anticipates rotation combinations when both playmakers are on the court together triggering the Grizzlies’ attack.
