The Cleveland Cavaliers will start conducting interviews this week as part of their search for coaches. They will have talks with Miami assistant Juwan Howard and Dallas assistant Jamahl Mosley, ESPN officials told the league.
The Lakers also received permission from the Heat to interview Howard, said a source at Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.
The Cavaliers should meet later with the assistants of the teams involved in the playoffs, sources said. Cleveland chief executive Koby Altman plans to meet a long list of candidates to replace acting coach Larry Drew.
Howard played 19 NBA seasons and retired with the Miami Heat in 2013, when he joined Erik Spoelstra's coaching staff. Howard has developed a good reputation in a short time, interviewing for the Detroit Pistons coaching position in 2018. Mosley spent four years as a Cavalry Assistant. He left in 2014 to join Denver for the next three seasons.
