08:02 AM ET 11.05 | As of Monday, there will be a new sheriff in town. [Philadelphia 76ers] minority shareholder Jason Levien is joining the Grizzlies as the club's new CEO and managing partner, according to sources familiar with Pera's thinking. Sources told ESPN.com that Levien, who recently sold his stake in the Sixers to join Pera's ownership group, will take charge of basketball operations as well as the Grizzlies' business department. That means the former NBA agent and front-office executive with the Sacramento Kings, sources say, will have the ultimate say on personnel and on-court matters, overseeing Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace and coach Lionel Hollins. Hollins is in the final year of his contract after back-to-back trips to the playoffs.
