Stein: Nets have asked Grizzlies for permission to interview Hollins


According to ESPN's Marc Stein the Nets have officially asked the Memphis Grizzlies for permission to interview Lionel Hollins.

Hollins, who is under contract until the end of June, is said to be on his way out of Memphis as he and the Grizzlies have failed to reach any agreement on an extension. He now becomes a candidate for the few high profile openings, including Brooklyn.

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.
