The Cleveland Cavaliers will tip off their coaching search by conducting interviews with Miami Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard and Dallas Mavericks assistant coach Jamahl Mosley, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
According to the report, the Cavaliers are expected to hold meetings with assistant coaches on teams taking part in the playoffs at a later date.
Cleveland general manager Koby Altman said in his press conference Thursday he expects to meet with a long list and candidates to fill the shoes of Larry Drew, who had a mutual parting of the ways with the team Wednesday.
Howard joined coach Erik Spoelstra’s staff in Miami after retiring as a player after 19 seasons in 2013. He interviewed for the Detroit Pistons job in 2018.
Mosley has ties to Cleveland, having spent four seasons with the Cavaliers as an assistant before moving on in 2014 to join the Denver Nuggets, with whom he spent three seasons.
