The Sacramento Kings added Hall of Fame big man Patrick Ewing to their list of head coaching candidates Saturday night. Now, it appears that list has grown yet again one day later.
CSN California has confirmed the Kings will bring in former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach David Blatt in for an interview early this week.
Blatt's interview with Sacramento's front office will take place Monday, reports ESPN.
In his duration as head coach of the Cavs, Blatt compiled an 83-40 record over a season and a half. Blatt's squad fell to the Warriors in the NBA Finals last season in six games.
After just 41 games this season, Blatt was fired from Cleveland with assistant Tyronn Lue taking his place. The Cavs were 30-11 at the time of his firing.
Cleveland went 27-14 the rest of the season under Lue.
Before coaching the Cavs, Blatt was a storied coach overseas. Blatt was a four-time Israeli League Coach of the Year and was named Euroleague Coach of the Year in 2014, right before he made the leap to the NBA.
The Kings have already interviewed Sam Mitchell, Mike Woodson, Kevin McHale, and Vinny Del Negro. Sacramento also has an interview set up with Ewing later this week.
