Evan Turner thinks Ja Morant and the Grizzlies should move out of Memphis.

The Grizzlies have been playing basketball in Memphis, Tennessee, since March 2001, and the city has a rich and successful basketball history.  

Is it time for the Grizzlies to leave the area, though, given the rising instability in the neighborhood and the locker room's dubious culture?   

When Evan Turner, a former NBA player, put out the concept on "The Old Man & The Three," some people took notice.   

He answered, "I'll put it in Nashville." "Relocate (the Grizzlies) to Nashville instead of Memphis."   

Although NBA teams have relocated before, the Nets were the most recent team to do so, and that was back in 2012.  

Nevertheless, Nashville would be the Grizzlies' preferred location, particularly given its closer proximity to the East Coast.   

Turner asserts that there is a market there for some representation in the NBA.   

Many folks are relocating from Los Angeles to Nashville, Turner continued. It will make a huge splash.
