MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Lionel Hollins has been introduced as the new coach of the Memphis Grizzlies. He was serving as a Milwaukee Bucks assistant when Memphis coach Marc Iavaroni was fired Thursday. Hollins' first game at the helm will be Tuesday against Denver.

The former Arizona State University star and Phoenix Suns assistant coach takes over a team that is last in the Southwest division with an 11-and-32 record and is riding a nine-game losing streak.
