HoopsHype Lionel Hallins rumors

June 4, 2011 Updates

An ESPN.com article attempted to shed light on the situation but erred on how playoff bonuses were handled. According to sources on both sides, Hollins and the assistants each had playoff bonuses written in their contracts. Hollins received a set amount while each coach negotiated a percentage of their salary. For example, the lowest paid assistants received 10-percent of their salary as a playoff bonus. Other assistants received more per the terms of their contract. Memphis Commercial Appeal
