The Cavaliers struck out on John Calipari, so they’re moving onto other coaching candidates.
Two who previously interviewed, Alvin Gentry and Tyronn Lue, have advanced to the second stage of the process.
Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times:
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:
Del Negro not making making the cut isn’t quite as curious as Hollins – or even Griffin, who received the first interview. That makes me wonder whether Gentry and Lue are the final two candidates or just the first two to advance to the next stage.
If neither Gentry nor Lue impress Gilbert, maybe the Cavaliers owner would make more an effort to get Donovan comfortable – though Gilbert has repeatedly failed to lure his desired college coach.
At this point, there’s little telling what Gilbert is thinking. Maybe Gentry or Lue will set him straight.
