According to several media reports including the USA Today... contract negotiations with Lionel Hollins broke down over the weekend with the Memphis Grizzlies...And Hollins has reportedly been given permission to talk with other teams about openings...like the Clippers and Nets.
The Grizzlies are then reportedly eyeing Memphis assistant and former Skyforce coach Dave Joerger as a possible replacement for Hollins and are confident that he could help retain the "Grit and Grind" culture that has become such a fabric of the team and the town. Grizzlies management is expected to meet soon with Joerger to discuss the situation while Hollins tests his market value. Joerger won five championships as a D-League head coach including 2005 with Sioux Falls and joined the Grizzlies staff in 2007.
