Lionel Hollins is confident he’ll return as coach of the Memphis Grizzlies next season. "The only conversations we've had is they said they wanted me back," Hollins said. "After we lost the first two games to the Clippers, we had a friendly conversation about the series and how they just wanted me personally to know that regardless of what's being said out there, this is how they felt.

"When you build something, you want to see it through to the fruition of it all.”
