The Cleveland Cavaliers will begin conducting interviews in their coaching search this week, including meetings with Miami assistant Juwan Howard and Dallas assistant Jamahl Mosley, league sources told ESPN.
The Lakers have also received permission from the Heat to interview Howard, a source told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.
The Cavaliers are expected to meet with assistants on teams involved in the playoffs later, sources said. Cleveland general manager Koby Altman is planning to meet with an expansive list of candidates to replace interim coach Larry Drew.
Howard played 19 NBA seasons, retiring 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 job in 2018. Mosley spent four years as an assistant with the Cavaliers, leaving in 2014 to join Denver for the next three seasons.
