Cavs schedule more coaching interviews
MAY 28, 2014 5:14p ET
The Cavaliers have scheduled two more interviews to fill their head-coaching vacancy, FOX Sports Ohio sources said Wednesday.
Also, the Los Angeles Times reported the Cavs will interview Clippers assistant and former Suns coach Alvin Gentry on Friday. FSO sources did not confirm the Gentry report.
Additionally, several sources said they expected the Cavs to reach out to University of Florida coach Billy Donovan. In an interview with the Associate Press, Donovan indicated he's open to coaching in the NBA.
"I think when you start making guarantees about life and start making guarantees about where you're going to be, that's not good because if for some reason I ever change my mind and did something, I wouldn't want (people) saying, 'Well, he promised, he guaranteed, he said this on record,'" Donovan told the AP. "I just think when you start doing that, that's a mistake."
Lue, 37, played alongside Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal as a point guard with the Lakers, then later next to Michael Jordan with the Wizards. He has never been a head coach, but has assisted Doc Rivers both with the Celtics and Clippers since 2009.
Usually, top prospects don't start taking part in individual workouts for teams until closer to the NBA draft. That means the Cavaliers, Bucks and 76ers may not see Kansas center Joel Embiid, Duke forward Jabari Parker or Kansas swingman Andrew Wiggins for a few more weeks.
But a lot of late-lottery candidates, potential second-round picks and everyone in between have begun their pre-draft tours. Here's a quick look at some of who is already headed where:
-- Noah Vonleh, PF, Indiana: Kings, Lakers.
-- DeAndre Daniels, F, Connecticut: Hawks, Hornets, Celtics.
-- Cleanthony Early, F, Wichita State: Celtics.
-- P.J. Hairson, G, North Carolina/D-League: Timberwolves, Celtics.
-- Glen Robinson III, SG, Michigan: Hawks, Hornets.
-- Marcus Smart, PG, Oklahoma State: Lakers.
