Hollins Wants to Return to Grizzlies as Coach
Memphis Grizzlies Head Coach Lionel Hollins has no contractual obligation to the franchise beyond this season, but he is hopeful he’ll get to keep coaching what he’s helped build in Memphis.
“There’s no question,” Hollins told ESPN, when asked if he hoped to be back with the Grizzlies after the season. “When you build something, you want to see it through to the fruition of it all.
Hollins said his contract situation hasn’t bothered him all season, and won’t be a distraction to him or his team going forward.
ESPN the Magazine’s Chris Broussard reported Thursday that Hollins would be at the top of the Brooklyn Nets’ list of candidates should he become available after the season.
