Add Chicago Bulls' assistant Ed Pinckney to the list of Grizzlies' head coaching candidates, as per Ken Berger of CBSSports.com. I don't know much about Pinckney other than he is a 6'9" former PF that was the 10th overall pick in the 1985 draft, and he had a nice 12 year NBA career with a 53.5% career FG percentage.
Additionally, it's is being reported by USA Today that the Grizzlies are monitoring situations around Nets executive Milton Lee, to potentially replace Chris Wallace in the GM role, and Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who might be looking for a new situation.

Levien and Co. are wasting no time and are looking to be very thorough in replacing the most successful coach in franchise history. I'd say I'm pretty pleased with the pool so far, although Alvin Gentry is a depressing option.
As for Lionel Hollins, Ramona Shelburne of ESPNLA.com reports that he'll be interviewing with the Clippers on Thursday (a rescheduled date).
