The Memphis Grizzlies have told interested parties in Chicago, where the NBA draft combine is underway, that they intend to select Murray State guard Ja Morant with the No. 2 pick, provided the New Orleans Pelicanstake Duke's Zion Williamson first overall, sources told ESPN.

The Grizzlies were awarded the second pick in Tuesday's draft lottery, moving up from the eighth slot thanks to the luck of the pingpong balls.

Sources said members of the Grizzlies' front office and ownership group already have let their intentions be known.
