Memphis has its next head coach.
JB Bickerstaff has agreed to a three-year contract with the Grizzlies to become the team's coach, ESPN reported, citing unidentified league sources.
He will replace David Fizdale, who was fired on Nov. 27 after a 7-12 start to the 2017-18 season.
Bickerstaff served as the Grizzlies' interim coach for most of the season before the hire, leading the team for the final 63 games of the regular season and posting a 15-48 record.
Bickerstaff, 39, previously served as assistant coach for the Rockets for 11 seasons before replacing Kevin McHale as interim coach in 2015. Bickerstaff went 37-34 that season and helped Houston reach the playoffs.
