Lionel Hollins is lined up as the favourite to replace Jason Kidd to become the new head coach of the Brooklyn Nets following the 41-year-old's departure, according to a report.

Lionel Hollins is the frontrunner to replace Jason Kidd as the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, according to a report.

Kidd was traded away by the Nets to the Milwaukee Bucks for two second-round picks in the 2015 and 2019 Drafts.

Hollins has been lined up by the Nets after spending a year out of the game when his contract was not renewed by the Memphis Grizzlies at the end of the 2012-13 season, reports ESPN.

The 60-year-old guided the Grizzlies to the NBA playoffs three times in his seven years at the club.
