NEW YORK -- The Brooklyn Nets reached an agreement in principle Wednesday with Lionel Hollins to become their coach, moving quickly after the departure of Jason Kidd. Matt Duchene Jersey . The deal with the former Memphis Grizzlies coach comes two days after the Nets made a trade with Milwaukee to allow Kidd out of his contract so the Bucks could hire him. Nets general manager Billy King and his assistants then met with Hollins on Monday night and again Tuesday before agreeing to the deal. Terms were not disclosed. "I want to thank the Nets ownership and Billy for this opportunity," Hollins said in a statement. "It has been a long process to get back into the league, and I believe that Billy and I will have a very successful working relationship. Brooklyn has firmly established itself as a franchise that is committed to winning, and I eagerly look forward to becoming part of that culture and building on the success of the past two playoff appearances." The Nets will introduce Hollins at a press conference Monday. Hollins led Memphis to 56 victories and the 2013 Western Conference finals before he and the Grizzlies parted ways. The Nets considered him last year after firing P.J. Carlesimo before hiring Kidd. He was the only known candidate the Nets interviewed this time. King said he had reached out to one other person who chose not to pursue the job. "If you look at (his) track record and what he did in Memphis, he was able to go in there and take a team, added some veterans and they continually got better," King said Tuesday. "He developed some young guys, (Marc) Gasol, some big guys. If you look at Memphis, they got consistently got better every year. All the way to the Western Conference finals." Kidd led Brooklyn to a 44-38 record and the second round of the playoffs in his lone season but the Nets allowed him to pursue other jobs after denying his request for more power within the organization. The Bucks held Kidds welcoming press conference earlier Wednesday. Hollins is known as a strong defensive coach, with the Grizzlies holding opponents to an NBA-low 89.3 points per game in his final season. He is the franchises career leader in wins and led them to three straight playoff appearances. He takes over a veteran team in Brooklyn that could easily fit his style of play if Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce return, and Brook Lopez and Deron Williams come back healthy after surgeries. Hollins went 214-201 with the Grizzlies and improved the teams record in each of his four full seasons, from 40 wins in 2009-10 to 56-26 in his final season. Memphis upset top-seeded San Antonio in the first round of the 2011 playoffs. But the Grizzlies came under new ownership and management during his final season, and they chose not to renew Hollins contract after they were swept by the Spurs in the conference finals. He met last month with Cleveland before the Cavaliers hired David Blatt. Nicolas Meloche Jersey . Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night. Conor Timmins Jersey .C., won gold in the womens 200-metre backstroke, and Dominique Bouchard of North Bay, Ont. http://www.hockeyavalanchestore.us/Colin-Wilson-Jersey/ . There is no argument that the line of Pacioretty, David Desharnais and Thomas Vanek was one of the hottest in the NHL leading into the post-season, and they did combine for three goals and seven points, but it was the depth of all four lines that helped propel Montreal.The Montreal Canadiens moved some pieces around at practice on Wednesday, an off-day between Games 2 and 3 of their second round series against the Boston Bruins. Rene Bourque was absent from Mondays practice with the flu. There has been no word as of yet on his availability for Game 3 Tuesday in Montreal. Ryan White was inserted into the top four lines on Monday, centring Travis Moen and Dale Weise on the fourth line. "I came to the rink like any other day, ready to work," said White. "My name happened to be on the sheet today. Well see how it is Tuesday. You want to go to war with your teammates and be a part of it. I hope to get that opportunity on Tuesday night.&quoot; Daniel Briere was moved to the wing alongside Lars Eller and Brian Gionta in Bourques absence. Rene Robert Jersey. Michael Bournival slotted alongside Tomas Plekanec and Brendan Gallagher in the shuffle. Douglas Murray, meanwhile, moved into the top six defenders beside Mike Weaver, bumping Francis Bouillon onto the fourth pairing alongside Jarred Tinordi. Alex Galchenyuk skated alone before his teammates on Monday. He is still rehabilitating from a knee injury he sustained against the Chicago Blackhawks on April 9. The Canadiens and Bruins are tied 1-1 in the series, each taking one game from the opening two at Bostons TD Garden.
