Johnny Davis Rumors

While the Nets have yet to announce who will be part of Hollins’ coaching staff, one likely option will be Henry Bibby, a longtime Hollins assistant in Memphis who spent last season working under Maurice Cheeks with the Pistons. Other names that have been reported as possibilities for Hollins’ staff include former Suns, Sonics and Kings coach Paul Westphal, Lakers assistant Johnny Davis — a teammate of Hollins on the 1977 champion Trail Blazers and a former assistant on his staff in Memphis — and current Nets assistant Joe Prunty.
Mayo credits assistant coach Johnny Davis for helping him get focused during Memphis’ playoff run, when Mayo averaged 11.3 points and a team high 40.8 percent from three-point range. “He is a great mentor of mine,” Mayo said. “He really picked my spirit up. He told me the regular season is over with and I have an opportunity to change things around. He gave me a whole different focus coming into the postseason.”
