Memphis Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera said Tuesday he believes the team can bounce back to win 50 games during the 2018-19 NBA campaign after recording just 22 victories this past season.
Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal passed along comments Pera made to Grind City Media about his outlook at the franchise’s first playoff-less season since 2009-10.
“Assuming Marc [Gasol] and Mike [Conley] come back healthy, I think we have a couple of surrounding pieces that are younger players that are going to make a positive impact,” he said. “We’ll get another good player in this draft. I see no reason why we can’t return to being a 50-win-plus team.”
