Desmond Bane not chipping in to cover Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins’ fine
Grizzlies guard Dillon Brooks (whose $12.2 million salary makes him Memphis’ second-highest-paid player behind Steven Adams) offered to pay Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins’ fine for criticizing officiating.
Memphis wing Desmond Bane, the former No. 30 pick who’s earning just $2,033,160 on his rookie-scale contract.

Not that Jenkins would accept the offer, anyway.
