Hollins completed a season in what was the most successful in Grizzlies history, guiding the team to 56 wins and the team's first-ever appearance in the Western Conference finals.

 

Recently Hollins had expressed a desire to stay with the Grizzlies, but there has been a growing tension and rift between him and the new front office appointed by new owner Robert Pera. Hollins famously bristled over the trade sending Rudy Gay to Toronto, saying, "When you have champagne taste, you can't be on a beer budget."

 

During his three stops, Hollins accumulated a record of 214-201 with the Grizzlies. However, in his most recent tenure, he went 196-155.

 

The Nets have reportedly expressed interest in Hollins, as have the Nuggets and Clippers.

 

I would say this is somewhat of a shocker.

 

I think Hollins would be a great fit with Denver. Hollins has proven that he can win without a true superstar. In my opinion, Denver definitely has a similar roster that Hollins can utilize.

Yeah i think he will end up in Denver or Clippers

 

Been hearing for awhile he wouldn't be back for personal differences with upper management. Its Memphis loss though because he is a solid coach

This isn't surprising. Heard lots of rumors last week about Denver and Memphis swapping coaches, basically.

Their front office is apparently comprised of retards... What a dumb move.

Apparently he doesn't buy into the advanced statistics and "Moneyball" style of roster management that many NBA teams are going to. Denver relies on this as well.... Interesting to see if they reach out to him.

They'll hire either Karl or David Joerger.

They'll hire either Karl or David Joerger.

I think the rumor is that Joerger is going to be the next coach, still attending draft workouts.

Hollins and Shaw are the leading candidates for the Denver job.

 

Hopefully Hollins gets the job and Shaw ends up having to settle for another assistant coaching job.
