MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Lionel Hollins has been more successful than any Grizzlies coach and will be a free agent after June 30.
He has the Grizzlies in the Western Conference finals for the first time and has won more games with this team than any other coach.
He probably wouldn't have a problem getting another job, but says he's very happy with the one he has.
New owners took over in November and decided to wait and see what they had before extending contracts. That has made Hollins a popular potential candidate for other openings.
Marc Gasol said Thursday that Hollins' focus has been on the playoffs, not contract talks.
Memphis needs Hollins' full postseason attention right now with the Grizzlies down 0-2 heading into Saturday's Game 3 against San Antonio.
