This season Hollins led the Grizzlies to the Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history. Besides the Nets, Hollins has shown interest in the Clippers' head coach opening, according to the Los Angeles Times

Meanwhile.Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Jeff Van Gundy, another potential candidate for the Nets job, is not, as previously reported, a candidate for the Clippers head coaching position.
