Avery Johnson Turns Down Grizzlies

Avery Johnson turned down the chance to coach the Memphis Grizzlies, according to ESPN.com.

Memphis reportedly offered Johnson a five-year contract to replace mark Iavaroni, who was fired on Thursday.

"I've said all along [that] at the right time and in the right situation, I will coach again," Johnson said Friday. "I am enjoying my time at ESPN and with my family. I think an awful lot of [Grizzlies owner] Michael Heisley and [general manager] Chris Wallace. I wish the Grizzlies the very best."
