Milwaukee Bucks assistant Taylor Jenkins is set to become head coach of the Memphis Grizzlies, ESPN reported Tuesday.

The Grizzlies fired J.B. Bickerstaff at the end of the 2018-19 season.

Jenkins has been assistant to head coach Mike Budenholzer for the last six seasons, five with the Atlanta Hawks (2013-18) and last year with the Bucks.

Jenkins becomes the third NBA coach to come directly from Budenholzer's staff, joining Utah's Quin Snyder and Brooklyn's Kenny Atkinson.

Jenkins will oversee a reshaped roster in Memphis that could include dealing point guard Mike Conley. The Grizzlies hold the No. 2 pick in the 2019 draft and are expected to select Murray State point guard Ja Morant.
