Lionel Hollins is one of the top unemployed coaches in (err, out of) the L, and the Rockets are hoping he’ll settle for an assistant gig this season. From ESPN.com:

The Houston Rockets are making a hard push to convince former Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins to join Kevin McHale’s staff as an assistant, according to sources close to the process.

 

However, sources tell ESPN.com that the Rockets recognize it will be difficult to land Hollins, who continues to covet his next opportunity as a head coach after his exit in Memphis following the 2013 playoffs.
