MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Lionel Hollins doesnt want to talk to any other NBA teams and wants to continue coaching the Memphis Grizzlies. Hollins said Monday on Sports 56 WHBQ-AM in Memphis he thought everything was good after a meeting with team owner Robert Pera and chief executive officer Jason Levien a few days ago, but then heard the Grizzlies had given him permission to talk to other teams. "People need to know from my perspective that I dont want to talk to any other teams," Hollins said. "I want to be here. I told ... the media after our exit interviews that if the team offered me a contract that I felt was fair, Id sign it the next day." The Grizzlies declined to comment. Hollins contract is up June 30. He addressed a variety of topics in a 28-minute interview but spent most of his time publicly defending his case to remain in Memphis. He has been with this franchise since the start as an expansion team in Vancouver in 1995 and made the move to Memphis with his only absence a stint in 2008 and part of 2009 as an assistant with Milwaukee. "I just want everyone to know in Memphis that I want to be here. I want to coach the Memphis Grizzlies, the team that the city has embraced and that has potential to go further with a few tweaks and adjustments," Hollins said. The winningest coach in franchise history, Hollins just led the Grizzlies to their first Western final only to be swept in four games. That capped a franchise-record 56-26 season, and Hollins has led the Grizzlies to a better record each season since taking over as head coach in January 2009. Hollins defended his ability to work with the teams new management. Pera took over the team in November, and Levien traded away leading scorer Rudy Gay on Jan. 30 in a money-saving move. Hollins said he was consulted about every move. He also discussed an incident during the Grizzlies first-round series with the Clippers when John Hollinger, vice-president of basketball operations, engaged Austin Daye on the court during a practice. Hollins said he was very upset. He said Monday he would have reacted the same way if the person had been President Obama, but that he laughed about the incident with Hollinger after practice. "It wasnt my motive to show management that I run things," Hollins said. "It had nothing to with anything other than that I reacted to somebody jumping on the court." Grizzlies assistant Dave Joerger is a possible replacement for Hollins if Memphis and the coach cant reach an agreement on a new contract. Hollins said that puts Joerger in a tough position in the NBA where loyalty is highly valued. "Why would you move a proven coach, who has shown what he can do to bring in an upcoming superstar?" Hollins said. "To me, thats ludicrous." Mike Vernon Jersey . LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. Doug Gilmour Jersey .Y. - Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has earned NHL first star of the week honours after winning in his first three appearances of the season. http://www.authentichockeyshopflames.com/adidas+mike+smith+flames+jersey . It was Kerbers third final of the year after losing to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia in Monterrey in April and to Petra Kvitova of Czech Republic in Tokyo two weeks ago. The 10th-ranked German improved her record in finals to 3-5. Matt Bartkowski Jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. Marek Hrivik Jersey . -- Running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings were back at practice for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday despite being hampered by hamstring injuries. Update:?David West and Zaza Pachulia have been included in the projections for Golden State.A team that just won a record 73 games isnt supposed to be able to add a former MVP in his prime.After they fell a game short of their second consecutive championship, thats the historic opportunity the rising salary cap gave the Golden State Warriors, who successfully pitched Kevin Durant on joining forces with two-time MVP Stephen Curry and All-Stars Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.With Durant, are the Warriors even better than last season? Is this the greatest team ever assembled? And how long can they expect to contend for championships with four stars all in their 20s?What the Warriors might look like with DurantWhile its remarkable that Golden State even had the opportunity to make room for Durant, doing so wont be painless. First, the Warriors will renounce the rights to?Harrison Barnes?and make him an unrestricted free agent -- according to a report from ESPNs Marc Stein --?which isnt a big deal since Durant takes Barnes spot in the starting lineup. Next, they will trade starting center Andrew Bogut?(reportedly to the Mavericks), clearing his $11.7 million salary off the books. Last, Golden State will renounce the rights to restricted free agent Festus Ezeli, according to a report from Marc Spears of the Undefeated.The Warriors will also have to renounce most of their other free agents, though they could keep the rights to one of Ian Clark, James Michael McAdoo and Brandon Rush.After signing Durant, Golden State would then have the $2.9 million room exception available -- used later Monday to sign center Zaza Pachulia as a replacement for Bogut -- and would have to fill out the remainder of the roster with players making the minimum salary. With Pachulia and David West (for the veterans minimum) taking less money, the Warriors no longer appear to be sacrificing so much depth to add Durant.Projecting the 2016-17 WarriorsThe moves necessary to fit Durants max salary would produce a rotation that projects like this based on the multi-year, predictive version of ESPNs real plus-minus (RPM) as well as my college projections for rookies Damian Jones and Patrick McCaw.Adding Pachulia and West means no longer needing to account for any replacement-level minutes under the assumption the team will re-sign McAdoo as a backup center. Golden State now projects to have a net rating of plus-13.7 points per 100 possessions -- far better than last years mark (plus-11.6).Typically, a plus-13.7 net rating would translate to about 70 wins, three fewer than the Warriors won last year with a weaker net rating thanks to their dominance in the clutch and tendency to struggle in the late stages of blowouts. Its certainly possible Golden State could be a better team in terms of advanced stats and win fewer games if those categories regress to the mean.At the same time, its worth noting that the RPM projections are designed to be conservative. Last yeear, the Warriors had the leagues best projection at an even 60 wins.dddddddddddd So Golden State does look far better on paper with Durant than the team that won 73 games.Warriors Kevin Durant Draymond GreenAs the Warriors certainly know, what happens in the playoffs counts more than the regular season. And the ability to extend minutes for their stars while cutting those for the weak bench in the postseason should make Golden State even better than this projection might imply.Im not sure the Warriors are light years ahead of the competition, but adding Durant strengthens their position as heavy favorites to win a second title -- in no small part by neutering an Oklahoma City Thunder team that took them to seven games in the Western Conference finals.Projecting Golden State in 2017-18 and beyondHow dominant the Warriors remain in future years will hinge in part on Durants desire to maximize his earning potential. Because hell have an additional year of experience and the cap is expected to rise again next summer, Durant could opt out -- if he signs a two-year deal with a player option -- and make a projected maximum of $35 million. However, Golden State would have to fit that figure under the cap.Add the guaranteed contracts on the books and Currys cap hold to Durants $35 million and the Warriors would have about $13 million left to re-sign Iguodala and potentially Livingston. Golden State would again have to sacrifice depth to max out Durant. And the Warriors wont have their first-round pick in 2017, which they traded to the Utah Jazz three years ago in order to sign Iguodala.Still, were talking about potentially the greatest assemblage of prime talent in NBA history. Weve seen plenty of big threes before, but never four All-Stars age 28 or younger. According to RPM, Golden State would have three of the leagues top eight players in 2015-16 -- Curry, Green and Durant.Moreover, if used correctly, the Warriors stars should make life easy for the lesser role players around them. Coach Steve Kerr can keep at least either Curry or Durant on the court at all times, an almost unimaginable luxury that allows Golden State to focus on shooting and defense from the other spots on the court without having to worry much about the need to create shots.Meanwhile, age works in the Warriors favor the further out we project. At some point LeBron James age is bound to show in the playoffs, while the San Antonio Spurs will have a tough time maintaining the same elite play as Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili near retirement.The next great challenger to the Golden State might be some team too young to even be on the horizon yet, like the Minnesota Timberwolves.Having added Durant, the Warriors figure to be the best team in the NBA for the foreseeable future. And thats a terrifying proposition for the rest of the league.
