Lakers to Hire Lionel Hollins as Assistant Coach


The Lakers will reportedly add Lionel Hollins as an assistant coach on Frank Vogel’s staff, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski:

Hollins is best known for ushering in the “grit and grind” era as head coach of the Memphis Grizzlies and last coached in the league in Brooklyn for a season and a half in Brooklyn when he was let go in the 2015-16 season after a 10-27 record to start that campaign. For his career, Hollins has a head coaching record of 262-272 and spent 17 years as an assistant in Phoenix, Vancouver, and Memphis before those jobs as a head man.
