Hollins Out, Cheeks Accepts Detroit Job, Kidd/BK Gets Serious

While the Los Angeles Clippers are trying to fill their head coaching position, here’s an update on what’s going on around the league:

Jason Kidd

When the news broke that Kidd had an interest in becoming the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, there was skepticism that the Nets would take his consideration seriously, but Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports things have gotten a bit serious between the two:

Here’s an excerpt from the post:

Kidd is competing with Indiana Pacers associate head coach Brian Shaw for the job now, sources said. Nets GM Billy King met with Kidd on Monday, and will interview Shaw on Wednesday.

Kidd, one of the best point guards in NBA history, is trying to make the rare leap from the playing floor to the sideline. Kidd has been leaning on his former Nets coach, Lawrence Frank, for insight into the total responsibilities of the head coach, but Frank is nowhere near committing to the possibility of joining Kidd as his top assistant coach, league sources said.

Lionel Hollins

Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal reports Hollins won’t be returning to the Memphis Grizzlies for the 2013-14 season:

The Los Angeles Times reports Hollins will be interviewed by the Clippers this Wednesday. The Denver Nuggets have also been granted permission to speak with Hollins while he was a member of the Grizz organization, so expect them to step in now that he’s a free agent.
