Alvin Gentry to meet with Cavaliers for second time on Friday


It was announced early this week that Los Angeles Clipper assistant coach Alvin Gentry would meet with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time this offseason, according to The Plain Dealer. Gentry, who had connections with Cleveland general manager David Griffin back in Phoenix, will be the first candidate to interview twice with the Cavs this offseason.

After working out No. 1 prospect Joel Embiid and interviewing former Cleveland star Mark Price for the head coaching vacancy on Tuesday, Gentry will go through another interview before the Cavaliers make their final decision on a head coach in the ensuing days. Gentry seems to be the frontrunner to land the head coaching job after the announcement came out that Gentry was getting a second interview over the weekend.

The Cavs are going to be in the NBA headlines a lot this week, as their search for a head coach seems to be dwindling down. Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio reported over the weekend that the coaching search would come to a finish within the next 10 days or so.
