Oh, Never Mind ... 

Apparently coming to his senses — or being led to them — prospective Memphis Grizzlies owner Brian Davis has changed his tune about putting old college teammate and ownership group partner Christian Laettner in a Grizzlies uniform. Davis issued the following statement through the Grizzlies media relations department this afternoon: “After speaking with Grizzlies management, we have determined that while the sale of the Memphis Grizzlies is pending, Christian Laettner will not play for the team,” said Brian Davis. “Both Christian and I are excited about the future of this franchise, but feel adding him to the roster could be disruptive at this time.”

Alas, Chris, we hardly knew ye.
