The 1997–98 NBA season was the Grizzlies' third season in the National Basketball Association. After finishing with the worst record in their first two seasons, the Grizzlies hired Brian Hill as head coach. In the offseason, they acquired Otis Thorpe from the Detroit Pistons, Sam Mack from the Houston Rockets, and signed free agent Tony Massenburg. The Grizzlies would play around .500 early into the season with a 6–7 start, but then struggle again posting a 13-game losing streak between December and January. At midseason, Thorpe was traded back to the Sacramento Kings while Anthony Peeler was dealt to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Grizzlies finally escaped last place by finishing sixth in the Midwest Division with a 19–63 record.
