Lionel Hollins Reportedly Interested in LA Clippers Coaching Job

It appears that despite his wishes, Grizzlies head coach Lionel Hollins in on his way out of Memphis. According to the LA Times, it didn’t take very long for Hollins’ reps to seek employment elsewhere. They reportedly inquired about the vacant coaching position with the LA Clippers: “Though Memphis Coach Lionel Hollins said he was stunned that the Grizzlies had granted him permission to speak with other teams, his representatives Monday began seeking a job for him by calling the Clippers, according to two NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. Hollins and his agent, Warren LeGarie, wanted Clippers officials to know that Hollins is interested in their opening, one executive said. They were waiting for the Clippers’ front office to hear back from owner Donald Sterling before any decisions could be made, the executive said. The Clippers reported interest in Denver Nuggets Coach George Karl appears to be going nowhere, another NBA executive said. Karl, who has one year left on his contract, hasn’t been contacted by the Clippers, and the Nuggets haven’t given any team permission to talk to their coach, the executive said.”

    Yea I saw that wasn’t implying this is what he wanted.

    He would bring this team to a new level if CP3 comes back. Definitely think he would be a better hire than Karl, I can’t believe Memphis isn’t scrambling to re-sign him.
