The Memphis Grizzlies have spent Monday cleaning house - CEO Jason Levien and Assistant GM Stu Lash have both been axed - and it sounds like once the front office has been cleared out, the team has some radical ideas for how they want to build going forward.
From ESPN's Bill Simmons:
Hearing that, if the Grizz totally clean house, the Memphis owner will look to trade for Tom Thibodeau + give him an SVG/Pistons-type deal.

Coaching trades are extremely rare, but the Clippers and Celtics proved last summer that they can still happen. Chicago's Tom Thibodeau wouldn't come cheap - he's arguably the best coach in the NBA that would consider a move - and Memphis apparently feels like the prospect of having complete control over basketball decisions would be enough to lure him away from Chicago.
