Memphis Grizzlies Allow Lionel Hollins to Walk; Who Will Take His Place?
Due to “philosophical differences,” the Memphis Grizzlies will not offer Lionel Hollins a new contract.
The 2008-09 season marked the beginning of Hollins’ third run as the Grizzlies’ head coach, and he has done well in the latest stint. This past season, the Grizzlies won 56 games and advanced to the Western Conference Finals — it was their best year in franchise history, not to mention they made the Playoffs in each of the past three seasons.
But despite the success, the Grizzlies allegedly felt that Hollins would not be cooperative with the new management team — majority owner Robert Pera, and CEO Jason Levin – after he expressed his criticsm of Rudy Gay being traded to the Toronto Raptors.
What did Hollins think? He went on the radio to say that he thought everything was fine, and did not want to talk to other teams; he wanted to stay.
But now, Hollins is set to interview with the the Los Angeles Clippers and the Denver Nuggets, but who’s potentially in line to fill his shoes in Memphis? Former Nuggets coach George Karl, former Phoenix Suns coach Alvin Gentry and Grizzlies assistant coach, David Joerger.
