Former Phoenix Suns head coach Igor Kokoskov recently interviewed for the vacant Memphis Grizzlies coaching position, sources told ESPN's Tim Bontemps.

The Grizzlies dismissed J.B. Bickerstaff on April 11 after a season and a half on the job. Kokoskov was fired by the Suns on April 22 after just one season and a 19-63 record.

Memphis also shuffled its front office last month when it appointed Jason Wexler to president of basketball operations and demoted longtime general manager Chris Wallace to a scouting role. The Grizzlies have the No. 2 pick in next month's NBA draft.

Kokoskov, a Serbian, became the first non-North American born-and-raised head coach in NBA history last season. The Grizzlies have also reportedly been linked with another European coaching candidate, Sarunas Jasikevicius of Lithuanian team Zalgiris.
