Cavs to interview Spurs assistant Ime Udoka for head coach vacancy
The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to look for a new head coach and will be interviewing San Antonio Spurs assistant Ime Udoka.
According to Cleveland.com reporter Chris Fedor, the interview between Udoka and the Cavs will take place on Sunday.
Udoka, 41, played in the NBA from 2003-2011. He spent three seasons with the Spurs, which helped open the door for him to join their coaching staff in 2012. They won a championship in 2014 with him on staff.
Udoka, who played with LaMarcus Aldridge in Portland, is credited with being a factor in Aldridge choosing to join the Spurs in 2015.
The Cavs are searching for a new head coach after they parted ways with Larry Drew following the season. Drew had replaced Ty Lue, who was fired after an 0-6 start.
In addition to Udoka, Juwan Howard was reported to be a possible candidate. There was also a report about Rick Pitino talking with the team.
