King Denies Report; Says Lionel Hollins’ Job Safe



Nets general manager Billy King said coach Lionel Hollins’ job is safe — for now.

King also pointedly denied a report from a Russian publication which said that the Nets had already decided to move on from (coach Lionel) Hollins, and were just holding onto him until they could find a replacement.

“It’s funny because I think the report said it was management,”  King said. “And I’m management so there was no truth to that. Lionel and I are working hard every day. We’re discussing possibilities, things we can do on the court, off the court. I’ve talked to ownership and right now, Lionel is our coach and we’re working to try to turn this around.”
