MEMPHIS, Tennessee — Memphis owner Robert Pera says he made changes in the Grizzlies' front office this offseason to make sure the organization is headed in the direction he wants it going.

Pera discussed his decision to keep Chris Wallace as his general manager along with other moves in the shake-up Friday during a press conference. It was just his fourth press conference with local reporters since taking over the Grizzlies as controlling owner in November 2012. He covered a variety of topics in a 30-minute session.

The front-office changes started in mid-May when he fired CEO Jason Levien, who help broker Pera's purchase of the franchise, and assistant general manager Stu Lash.

Pera says he's happy to be judged on what the Grizzlies accomplish from here on out.
