As noted in the article:

It might be tempting to think of the Sounds as a continuation of the Memphis Tams, but they were not. The team had all new players, a new name, a completely different color scheme and identity and completely new ownership. Storen lined up several notable local figures as co-owners of the new team including musician Isaac Hayes and Holiday Inn figure Kemmons Wilson. Storen named the new team the Memphis Sounds and developed a new red and white color scheme and logo.

Storen cleared out the former Tams roster and brought in veteran players such as Mel Daniels, Freddie Lewis, Roger Brown, Chuck Williams, Collis Jones, George Carter, Rick Mount and Julius Keye. The only player who had played for the Tams who appeared in uniform for the Sounds was Larry Finch, a local favorite because he had played college basketball at Memphis State University.[5]—Preceding unsigned comment added by LanternLight (talkcontribs) 20:56, Nov 27, 2008
