Lionel Hollins on player development

In a remarkably candid --and detailed-- discussion with a Memphis reporter, Chris Vernon, Lionel Hollins talks about the challenges of player development, discussing why it's so difficult. He talks about a number of Grizzlies players he's coached and why they did or didn't make it, from Jerryd Bayless to Marcus Williams to Acie Law to Greivis Vasquez to Sam Young. The interview was recorded by Three Shades of Blue, a Grizzlies blog, on the opening day of training camp last October.

The Nets can't talk to Hollins until after the Grizzlies season ends, which could easily happen this week.
