CLEVELAND (AP) - More than one month after firing Mike Brown, the Cavaliers haven't found his successor.
However, they could be close.
The team had second interviews with Los Angeles Clippers associate head coach Alvin Gentry and assistant Tyronn Lue on Friday, meetings that were expected to include Cavs owner Dan Gilbert. Gentry and Lue are among at least a dozen candidates contacted by the club since Brown was fired on May 12 following a 33-49 season, ending his second stint with the club.
Cleveland has scheduled an interview for next week with former Maccabi Tel Aviv coach David Blatt, who announced Thursday he was leaving the European champion for an NBA job. Blatt did not specify which team he was joining, but said he has not been offered the Cavs' position. Blatt also has been approached by Golden State to be an assistant under new coach Steve Kerr.
