The Golden State Warriors plan to interview Lionel Hollins for the head coaching job next week, according to Yahoo Sports.
Hollins, the former Memphis Grizzlies coach, is expected to meet with the Warriors during the NBA pre-draft camp in Chicago.
The Warriors are looking to replace Mark Jackson, whom they fired on Tuesday.
Hollins is a candidate for the Oregon State job, according to CBSSports.com.
The Warriors also plan to contact Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau and former Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. They already contacted former Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy.
George Karl, Jerry Sloan, Fred Hoiberg and Kevin Ollie are also reportedly among a list of names the Warriors may have interest in. The team is also waiting for NBA assistants David Fizdale, Alvin Gentry and Nate McMillan to complete playoff runs.
TNT analyst Steve Kerr has also been reported as interested in the Warriors job but he is also being pursued by the New York Knicks, who may formally offer him the job.
