Hasheem Thabeet canceled a scheduled workout with the Grizzlies on Sunday, and it may not have been because of a sore shoulder.

The injury was the official explanation, but Chad Ford of ESPN has reported that Thabeet doesn't want to play in Memphis.

Instead of working out for the Grizzlies, Thabeet stayed in Los Angeles to talk Thunder general manager Sam Presti into drafting him with the third overall pick.

"They don't spend any money anymore. They don't have a commitment to put a winning team on the floor right now. It's not where an agent wants to send his star pick," one source said of Memphis.

Thabeet, Ricky Rubio and Stephen Curry have all refused workouts with the Grizzlies.

Who would want to play for a team that is only interesting in saving money, doesn't treat their players all that great, plays in a small market in a boring city, and oh yeah...a city that has one of the worst crime rates in America.

Not exactly the easiest sell. But unlike Rubio, he doesn't have a whole lot of choice. He not in a place where he can call any shots.
