Nets, Lionel Hollins expected to be completed today

The Brooklyn Nets coaching situation has been a fascinating one, after Jason Kidd tried to gain more power and was unceremoniously ousted, they were looking for a new head coach. There were reports from Marc Stein of ESPN.com that the Nets were targeting Lionel Hollins.

Just one day later the Nets and Hollins appear to be close to putting ink to paper and making it official.

Hollins is a veteran head coach who led the Memphis Grizzlies to a 56-26 record in the 2012-13 season before being fired. While Jason Kidd was able to turn around a pour start and get the Nets into the playoffs, it is intriguing to see what a veteran coach like Hollins could do with that veteran roster.
