Whatever happened to the NBA team Vancouver Grizzlies? And why does the NBA only have ONE Canadian team?

    They're now the Memphis Grizzlies. And there's only one Canadian team because Canada doesn't have many basketball players of exceptional talent and therefore the market is small.

    The Grizzlies moved to Memphis in 2001. The reason why the league now only has one Canadian team is due to the Grizzlies having low attendance.

    Vancouver Grizzlies moved to Memphis, and now because of Covid the 

    Toronto Raptors are playing their home games in Florida. If and when

    the pandemic goes away, perhaps the NBA will examine if there's enough

    of a market in Montreal, but otherwise it's not looking good.

    Canadian teams in any sport struggle to attract free agents because of the high taxes. That means they usually aren't very good which means people don't want to pay to watch them.

    They moved to Memphis starting with the  2001–02 season. There isn't an ownership group that has the money and sees Canada as a viable business option other than Toronto ownership now.

    They're now the Memphis Grizzlies. And there's only one Canadian team because Canada doesn't have many basketball players of exceptional talent and therefore the market is small. This probably correlates due to them having a smaller % of black people in major urban cities compared to the USA, however they also have less crime too.
