The Brooklyn Nets met with former Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins again on Tuesday and could advance into contract negotiations soon, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

According to the report, Hollins met with Nets general manager Billy King and continued with meetings on Tuesday with members of owner Mikhail Prokhorov's group.

Hollins last coached in the NBA during the 2012-13 season, but his contract was not renewed after leading the team to 56 victories. He has already been targeted for the Los Angeles Lakers' coaching vacancy.

The Nets are seeking to replace Jason Kidd, who bolted for the Milwaukee Bucks head coaching position after being denied more front office power. The Bucks traded second-round picks in 2015 and 2019 to allow Kidd out of his previous contract with Brooklyn.
