CLEVELAND (AP) - A person familiar with the Cavaliers' coaching search says Los Angeles Clippers assistant Alvin Gentry will have a second interview for the vacancy.
Gentry is the first known candidate to meet for a second time with the Cavs, who fired Mike Brown - for the second time - on May 12. Gentry's second meeting has not yet been scheduled, said the person who spoke Monday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team was not making its plans public.
The Cavs hope to have a coach in place before the June 26 NBA draft. Cleveland has the No. 1 overall pick.
Gentry previously worked in Phoenix with new Cavs general manager David Griffin.
