Currently one of the last teams without a head coach in the NBA, the Los Angeles Clippers are still going through potential candidates. Today that process will continue as they plan to interview former Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins.
That meeting may be nothing more than a courtesy though as a report from the Los Angeles Times suggests that the meeting between the Clippers and Byron Scott went “very well”.
Per the Times:
As the Clippers continued their search for a new coach, former Cleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott was the latest candidate to interview for the job Tuesday, according to several NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
Scott met with Clippers President Andy Roeser, vice president of basketball operations Gary Sacks and director of basketball operations Eric Miller at the team’s practice facility.
“The interview went very well,” according to one executive.
Scott talked to the Clippers on the heels of Indiana associate head coach Brian Shaw having his face-to-face with the team’s front office Monday, according to several executives.
