Nets coaching carousel is spinning away

Couple interesting notes on the Brooklyn Nets’ coaching search:

• Colleague Chris Broussard tweeted Thursday that the Nets would be interested in Lionel Hollins if he doesn’t re-sign with the Memphis Grizzlies after the season.

• Regarding Doc Rivers’ possibly trying to get out of his contract to coach the Nets next season, Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge told WEEI radio, “I think Doc will be coaching the Celtics next year.”

ESPN colleague Stephen A. Smith has reported that the Nets are expected to ask the Celtics for permission to talk to Rivers.
