Report: Lionel Hollins to interview for Warriors job next week
Former Grizzlies coach to interview with Golden State after Mark Jackson was fired last week.
Lionel Hollins is expected to interview for Warriors head coach opening during the NBA pre-draft camp in Chicago next week, a source said.— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) May 10, 2014
It's an interesting candidate considering Hollins was reportedly not retained by the Grizzlies after his contract expired for precisely the same reason Jackson was let go -- not getting along with ownership.
Hollins is a candidate for the Oregon State job, as CBSSports.com's Gary Parrish reported this week.
He would provide the Warriors a motivational leader who emphasizes defense and can relate to the players, a carryover from Jackson, but the offensive issues the Warriors strugged with likely wouldn't be solved through Hollins' inside-out approach. The Grizzlies' offense was low in efficiency nearly every year under Hollins, but their defense was often elite.
