Report: Bobcats to Interview Ewing
Patrick Ewing is one of several candidates the Charlotte Bobcats will interview for their head coaching vacancy and the Hall of Fame center will meet with team officials next week, said people familiar with the situation.
The people spoke to The Associated Press Thursday on condition of anonymity because the team hasn’t publicly announced its list of candidates.
Ewing is an assistant with Orlando and a friend of Bobcats owner Michael Jordan.
The Bobcats have interviewed Golden State assistant coach Michael Malone and Bobcats assistant Stephen Silas, son of former Charlotte coach Paul Silas, the people told the AP. The Bobcats are also interested in Indiana assistant Brian Shaw, Cleveland assistant Nate Tibbetts and St. John’s assistant Mike Dunlap. It’s expected the Bobcats will talk to several other candidates before making a decision.
