Hollins denies rift with Grizz management

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins says he's on board with Memphis' new management, even though he would have liked to see the team's core stay together.

Hollins spent more than 20 minutes before Friday night's game against the Golden State Warriors discussing the turmoil around the team.

The Grizzlies have played poorly after two recent trades. One was a money move that sent Marreese Speights, Wayne Ellington and Josh Selby to Cleveland. Then a three-team deal sent Memphis leading scorer Rudy Gay to Toronto. The Grizzlies are on a 2-game slide.

That led to speculation that the team's chemistry was damaged, and that Hollins was not on the same page with the Grizzlies' new front office staff under owner Robert Pera.
