Extend the lease. That's all Robert Pera would have to do to reassure nervous Memphians. Extend the lease that binds the team to FedExForum.
Right now, the lease says the team can't move until 2021. Make it 2031 and the citizenry would throw a parade for the guy.
He could ask FedEx to extend the naming rights deal, too. I bet FedEx would be willing to kick in some more loot to keep the Grizzlies here for the long haul.
Just like that, all the skepticism would disappear. Memphians would rush to embrace the new owner.
