Woj says other candidates who have interviewed for the job include David Griffin, Larry Harris, Trajan Langdon, Gersson Rosas and Tommy Sheppard.
Any candidate who takes over the team will be tasked with trying to find the best available trade for Anthony Davis this summer, as well as with trying to draft well.
Ferry, 52, has history as a Hawks and Cavaliers GM. He has been working with the Pelicans since 2016, though only became the interim GM two months ago. His comments about Luol Deng contributed to his ousting in Atlanta.
