Grizzlies Expected to Hire Hollins

By  | 

The Memphis Grizzlies are expected to introduce Lionel Hollins as their new coach at a news conference Sunday.

The Grizzlies fired coach Marc Iavaroni on Thursday and Johnny
Davis acted as interim coach on Friday, when Memphis lost 108-88 at
New York.

Memphis general manager Chris Wallace told reporters in New York
the team club hoped to sign Hollins, a Milwaukee assistant. Wallace
said he wanted Hollins to be able to run practices before Tuesday's
game with Denver.

Hollins has already served as an interim coach for the Grizzlies
twice, going 18-46.
