Well, it didn't take long for the Brooklyn Nets to replace former head coach Jason Kidd. On Wednesday, the Nets reportedly reached a deal with former Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins, who—in his final season in Memphis—led the Grizzlies to the 2013 Western Conference Finals. Naturally, many fans believe that the Nets just made a major upgrade at the head coaching position.

#BrooklynNets should thank Jason Kidd for quitting on the team. Lionel Hollins is a much better coach.— Andrew Tse (@andrew_tse) July 2, 2014
#Nets have to feel like they hit the jackpot to go from Kidd, get some picks, AND get Lionel Hollins - always been a big fan of his.— Josh McCuistion (@JLMcCuistion) July 2, 2014
