Memphis Halts Nets From Interviewing Hollins
The Brooklyn Nets’ search for a coach may no longer include Memphis Grizzlies Head Coach Lionel Hollins.
A source confirmed to ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard that the Nets were denied permission to speak with the Memphis Grizzlies coach. The source told Broussard the Nets are unsure whether they’ll ask to speak to Hollins again.
Hollins is still under contract with the Grizzlies through June 30. Then, assuming he doesn’t re-sign with Memphis, Hollins can become a free agent.
