NBA Rumors: Lionel Hollins Emerging As Front Runner For Nets Job

In one of the more peculiar stories of the off-season, the Brooklyn Nets have given permission to the Milwaukee Bucks to talk to their head coach Jason Kidd. While nothing is imminent, Kidd apparently would like more control of the team and the Nets don’t want to give it to him.

The Bucks already have a head coach in Larry Drew, but apparently would be willing to give Kidd the power in an organization that he seeks. Kidd is still the head coach of the Nets at this moment, but the team is already preparing itself for life without Kidd, and Lionel Hollins is the front-runner according to USA Today’s Sam Amick:

Hollins, who took the Grizzlies to the Western Conference finals in 2013 and remains in the running for the Los Angeles Lakers job, is seen as the early front-runner.

Along with Hollins, Amick reports that George Karl would also be a serious candidate for the Nets head coaching position should it become available. Both of these coaches have been considered candidates for the Lakers position with Hollins considered one of the favorites along with Byron Scott.

This entire ordeal could change things for the Lakers. Hollins’ removal would take away one of the top candidates for the Lakers job, while Kidd moving to Milwaukee could bring on another candidate in Larry Drew.

The team is likely to head into free agency with no head coach, but big plans. Players like Carmelo Anthony, Chandler Parsons, and Greg Monroe are all expected to be targets of the Lakers, which would make the job even more attractive for their next head coach, whoever that may be.
