It's possible the Cavs will hire a rookie head coach, but I wouldn't bet on it. The mandate for new General Manager David Griffin is to make a serious playoff run. A safe guess is that he'll pick between Alvin Gentry, Lionel Hollins and Vinny Del Negro -- three established coaches. There will be another round of interviews for the three veterans and some others in the next week or so, these with owner Dan Gilbert. The Cavs want to have a coach in place for the June 26th draft.

It's unclear if these five candidates make up the pool from which the Cavs will select their next head coach. None of the five are believed to have met with owner Dan Gilbert yet, so a second round of interviews could take place before a decision. It's also unclear if the team plans to have a coach in place by the 2014 NBA Draft on June 26. Cleveland Plain Dealer
