Default Lionel Hollins is new Grizzlies head coach

Memphis Grizzlies General Manager and Basketball Operations Chris Wallace today named Lionel Hollins the new head coach of the Memphis Grizzlies.

For Hollins, it will mark his third head coaching stint with the Grizzlies, where he was a staple in the team’s coaching ranks from 1995-07. The 20-year NBA coaching veteran has worked with current Grizzlies Rudy Gay, Hakim Warrick and Kyle Lowry as an assistant under former Grizzlies Head Coaches’ Mike Fratello and Tony Barone. Hollins, who still maintains a residence in Bluff City with his family, recently spent the first half of the 2008-09 season as an assistant coach under Scott Skiles with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Cheap replacement. Wallace is wrong again. He had the chance to bring a coach for the future, some good coaches are currently unemployed and will take the opportunity to coach this group of talented players for the next years. This season is already over for the Grizzlies, why not to think about the future?

He might be the wrong choice. But maybe he will be able to get these guys to play like a team. Only time will tell.

The question is if Hollins is the coach for the future for this team and the answer seems to be negative based on his previous performance as head coach. I will be really happy being wrong this time, though. This roster is more talented that the one he had back in 2000 and he is much more experienced. Still, I don't see him becoming the head coach for several years.

Yeah well his deal ends at the end of next season.

I except this coach to imply a Run and Gun type of offensive similiar to the suns a few years ago.

Anything besides that equals FAIL.
