It’s surprising that a Memphis team that had gutted its front office would bring Joerger back, but reports are that the Grizzlies wanted to swap first-round picks in this year’s draft and get a second-round pick in order to let Joerger leave, which was far too steep a price for the Wolves.

So look now for Saunders to target his former player and a well-respected voice in the NBA in Mitchell.

Jottings

• Looking back to the NFL draft, Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman said fifth-round pick David Yankey was the top player left on their board when their choice came up. “He is a big offensive guard who has played some tackle at times [at Stanford], so he gives you some position flexibility,” Spielman said.

• Gophers football coach Jerry Kill was asked if college football will ever get the same offseason practice rights as college basketball. “It’s certainly come up many times, and we have made [some] strides in the football situation in that we do have a couple of hours through the week that we can meet with our players in the classroom and watch video and instruct them,” Kill said.

“We can also be in the weight room in the summer at their workouts. We can’t be involved if there’s a ball out there, but everything else we can do, and we haven’t been able to do that. Being in the weight room and being able to watch their workouts is an added plus.”

• Former Gophers assistants Kevin Sumlin and Tony Levine, a former player and assistant under Sumlin, have both moved up the college football coaching ladder. Sumlin was an assistant coach with the Gophers from 1993 to ’97, and wide receiver Levine was one of his favorite players. So when Sumlin got the Houston head coaching job in 2008, one of the first assistants he hired was Levine.

This week Levine, now head coach of the Cougars, signed a five-year contract that will extend him through the 2018 season. Sumlin, now at Texas A&M, got a six-year contract extension for $30 million in November.
