The Charlotte Bobcats continue to cast a wide net in their search for a new coach.
After reportedly interviewing Patrick Ewing on Thursday, the next in line was called in, according to a tweet from Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.
I’m told Grizzlies assistant Dave Joerger is next up for #Bobcats interview. Defensive specialist, won a title as a D-League head coach
Also on the interview list with Joerger and Ewing are Mike Malone of Golden State, Cleveland’s Nate Tibbetts, St. John’s Mike Dunlap and Bobcats assistant Stephen Silas (son of former coach Paul Silas). Brian Shaw of Indiana is expected to be interviewed after the Pacers playoff run ends.
There may be more. Nothing wrong with taking a look at a lot of applicants early in the process.
