Updated: June 2, 2013

The Memphis Grizzlies have given permission to Lionel Hollins to speak to other teams about there coaching vacancies as talks have broken down with the team. Word has it that “major philosophical differences” are the main reasons for the broken down talks about an extension.

The Brooklyn Nets may be one of the teams interested although word has it that Brian Shaw is the favorite at this time and not Hollins.

Shaw is still working as an assistant with the Indiana Pacers who play Game 7 Monday night so he wont be able to interview until the Pacers season is over.

After talks on a contract extension stalled over the weekend with what one source calls “major philosophical differences,” coach Lionel Hollins is likely done as the coach of the Memphis Grizzlies, league sources tell Yahoo! Sports.

The Grizzlies granted Hollins permission to speak to other teams about vacancies on Sunday, possibly clearing the way for him to discuss a deal with the Los Angeles Clippers. So far the Brooklyn Nets have shown no inclination that they want to meet with Hollins to discuss their coaching vacancy. Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw remains high on the Nets’ list.

After several days of talks among management, Hollins and his representation, the sides were unable to seriously consider terms of a potential contract because of hurdles that they couldn’t clear with how new management wants the coach to fit into the franchise’s belief systems, sources said.[/quote_simple]
