MEMPHIS -- The man in the middle of Memphis firestorm was present for pre-draft workouts Wednesday.
Read into it what you will, because he didnt say anything to aid the conversation.
Five draft prospects worked out for 90 minutes in front of Grizzlies head coach Lionel Hollins, director of player personnel and basketball development Stu Lash and vice president of basketball operations John Hollinger, with whom Hollins has had a private battle that is now very public.
Memphis is trying to put the drama aside for a minute because it has three second-round selections later this month and will hold the second of these workouts Friday.
Hollins wasn't talking Wednesday. Not only did he not speak with the collected media, but he kept his distance from reporters on one end of the practice facility and talked into an earpiece during the interview sessions. Unlike previous years workouts, Wednesdays was closed to the media.
At the end of the workouts, Hollins and Hollinger shared a laugh...
