Sources: Grizz make it known they'll pick Morant

CHICAGO -- The Memphis Grizzlies have told interested parties in Chicago, where the NBA draft combine is underway, that they intend to select Murray State guard Ja Morant with the No. 2 pick in the draft, provided the New Orleans Pelicans take Duke's Zion Williamson with the first pick, sources told ESPN.

The Grizzlies were awarded the second pick in Tuesday's draft lottery, moving up from the eighth slot thanks to the luck of the ping pong balls.

Sources say members of the Grizzlies front office and ownership group have let their intentions be known.
