Though there’s no official deal yet, Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports that signs point toward an agreement forthcoming between the Brooklyn Nets and top coaching candidate Lionel Hollins:
All quiet on Nets/Lionel Hollins front, but signs pointing toward an agreement. Brooklyn has no immediate plans to interview anyone else

With free agents quickly making decisions in the NBA moratorium period, it makes sense that the Nets want to push their coaching decision through quickly. But that doesn’t mean this will be done tonight or tomorrow, especially if they want to do their due diligence.
