According to ESPN's Chris Broussard, the Charlotte Bobcats are going to interview Grizzlies assistant Dave Joerger on Friday for their head coaching vacancy. Joerger, who has spent 5 seasons with the Grizzlies, has essentially been given a majority of the credit for being our defensive architect, having spent time as our defensive coordinator, prior to being named the head assistant coach. It would certainly be a tough loss for the Grizzlies, but it's a well-deserved opportunity for a talent like Joerger.
Also being interviewed are St. John's assistant Mike Dunlap and, yup, Orlando Magic assistant Patrick Ewing. Something tells me he and Michael Jordan will get along quite well!
