Grizzlies draft Jaren Jackson with fourth overall pick

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Jaren Jackson Jr. is so excited about heading to the Memphis Grizzlies as the fourth overall pick in the NBA draft that he doesn't care where he plays.

"It could be the 5, the 4, the 3, the 2, the 1," Jackson said Thursday night in a conference call with reporters. "Realistically, the 5 or the 4. Whatever coach can put me in, I'm all for it."

Well, the Grizzlies have a veteran at center in Marc Gasol. But they do need plenty of help coming off their worst season in nearly a decade. The power forward from Michigan State became Memphis' pick after pre-draft reports that the Grizzlies might trade out of the franchise's first lottery pick since 2010.
