Report: Alvin Gentry could interview for Cavs job

Former Phoenix Suns head coach and current Los Angeles Clippers associate head coach Alvin Gentry could soon interview for the Cleveland Cavaliers head coaching job, as well as the Utah Jazz’s head job. Gentry is also drawing interest from the Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors for their associate head coaching positions. From Marc Spears’ report for Yahoo! Sports:

Los Angeles Clippers associate head coach Alvin Gentry is expected to soon interview for the Utah Jazz‘s head-coaching vacancy, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey arrived in Los Angeles on Wednesday to see predraft workouts. The Jazz have already interviewed Chicago Bulls assistant coach Adrian Griffin, but have been deliberate in their process to hire a new head coach.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have also contacted the Clippers about Gentry for their head-coaching vacancy, but an interview has not been set up, a source said. Gentry has ties to new Cavaliers general manager David Griffin when both worked for the Phoenix Suns.

Gentry is one of the more logical choices for the Cavs head coaching job. He runs an up-tempo offense that would compliment  the current personal on the roster, such as point guard Kyrie Irving. The Cavs, however, are 10 days into their coaching search and no candidate has separated themselves from the pack.
