Jerry Sloan, Bobcats Meeting Today
The 70-year-old (Jerry) Sloan, who insists his energy has returned to the levels required to do the job his way, discussed his coaching candidacy as well as the NBA playoffs in an interview with SI.com on Thursday. As Sloan indicated, he has spoken with Bobcats owner Michael Jordan about Charlotte’s coaching position and will meet with team officials on Friday in Utah for a formal interview.
SI.com: Where do things stand with your coaching future?
Sloan: I’m supposed to talk to Charlotte tomorrow, and beyond that I haven’t talked to anybody else.
SI.com: Are you 100 percent interested in that job, or is this a two-way feeling-out process at all?
Sloan: I wouldn’t talk to them if I wasn’t interested. I wouldn’t waste their time. That’s not something I’m interested in doing. But I have no idea, and they probably have no idea about me, so I don’t know. I guess that’s why we’re meeting.
