Report: Lakers coach on Blazers radar to join Chauncey Billups’ staff

Frank Vogel, Jason Kidd and Lionel Hollins

The Los Angeles Lakers may lose another member of their coaching staff.

It is rumored that Lionel Hollins is wanted by the Portland Trail Blazers to fill out new head coach Chauncey Billups’ new staff.

Hollins would bring solid experience to Portland, as he won the NBA championship last year with L.A. and was previously a head coach for several years in Memphis.

Billups was just hired by the Blazers to replace outgoing head coach Terry Stotts after several early postseason exits.

L.A. recently lost assistant Jason Kidd, as he left to join the Dallas Mavericks.

The Lakers have been active in looking for replacements for Kidd and possibly Hollins. Scott Brooks, who previously coached the Oklahoma City Thunder, recently had an interview with the Purple and Gold.
