The Cleveland Cavaliers will begin conducting interviews in their trainer search this week, including meetings with Miami badistant Juwan Howard and Dallas badistant Jamahl Mosley, league sources told ESPN.
The Lakers have also received permission from the Heat to interview Howard, a source told Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.
The Cavaliers are expected to meet with attendees on the teams involved in the playoffs later, the sources said. Cleveland general manager Koby Altman plans to meet with an extensive list of candidates to replace interim coach Larry Drew.
Howard played 19 seasons in the NBA, retiring with the Miami Heat in 2013, when he joined the coaching staff of Erik Spoelstra. Howard has earned a good reputation in a short time, was interviewed for the post of coach of the Detroit Pistons in 2018. Mosley spent four years as an badistant to the Cavaliers, and retired in 2014 to join Denver for the next three seasons.
