Brooklyn Nets filling out coaching staff with veterans?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Nets will introduce Lionel Hollins as their new head coach Monday at 10:30 a.m. Whether they will name any assistants Monday is uncertain, but add a new name to the speculation regarding who will join Hollins on the bench in Brooklyn, Johnny Davis.

Ramona Shelburne tweets...

Davis, 58, played with Hollins on the 1977 Trailblazers NBA champs and his coaching resume includes stints as an assistant with eight NBA teams, including the Nets in 1997-99 under John Calipari.  He's also served as head coach for one season in Philadelphia, for two seasons in Orlando and had a two game stint with Memphis after Marc Iavaroni was fired and Hollins took over. His record as a head coach is 73-146. Most recently, he worked under Mike D'Antoni in L.A.

Peter Vecsey has already reported that that Hollins may get Paul Westphal -- who gave Hollins his start -- as his lead assistant and Henry Bibby as an assistant. It's likely Joe Prunty will stay but he has other offers.
