David Blatt Rumors
The Sacramento Kings will interview former Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt for their head-coaching vacancy early this week, according to league sources. Sources told ESPN.com that Blatt will become the latest in a string of recent head coaches to interview for the post, with the Kings determined to commission a broad search in their hunt for George Karl’s replacement.
Two and half weeks after Phil Jackson began his narrow coaching search, former Cavaliers coach David Blatt “still is in the mix” for the Knicks head job, according to an NBA source.
Blatt has told confidants he has a shot, though Rambis remains a front-runner. Luke Walton, Jackson’s preferred choice, is off the board. As expected, he took his dream job with the Lakers. Once the Lakers fired Byron Scott last week, Jackson knew the Knicks went from long shot to no shot.
