The Commercial Appeal: Legendary NBA center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar sat in on the Grizzlies’ practice Monday morning. The NBA’s all-time leading scorer will entertain joining the organization, several sources confirmed.

Grizzlies management had no comment about Abdul-Jabbar’s presence. Memphis, however, asked for and received permission from the Los Angeles Lakers to speak with Abdul-Jabbar.

Abdul-Jabbar, 62, is under contract with the Lakers after having tutored Andrew Bynum over the past several seasons. But the Los Angeles Daily News reported earlier this month that Abdul-Jabbar’s interaction with Bynum would decrease and he’d take a lesser role with the Lakers this season.

The Griz have three centers – two of which are considered projects – that could benefit from Abdul-Jabbar’s knowledge and experience. Marc Gasol, Hamed Haddadi and rookie Hasheem Thabeet met Abdul-Jabbar for dinner Sunday night.
