Two people familiar with the situation say the Bobcats will interview Orlando assistant Patrick Ewing on Thursday in Charlotte for their vacant head coaching position.(AP) —
The people say Charlotte will interview Memphis assistant Dave Joerger on Friday. The people spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the team hasn’t publicly announced its list of candidates.
This comes as no surprise. Ewing and Michael Jordan are close friends and this has been expected since Paul Silas was fired.
