Trail Blazers: Two teams interested in Blazers' Monty Williams
Blazer assistant coach Monty Williams has attracted the attention of
two teams looking for a head coach.
Philadelphia will reportedly interview Williams Monday and New Orleans will meet with Williams soon after he exits his interview with the 76ers. Williams is considered a strong candidate for the job in New Orleans.
The 76ers are looking for a new coach after firing Eddie Jordan after one season. The Sixers have reportedly met with former 76ers star and current TNT analyst Doug Collins and with former Dallas Mavericks coach Avery Johnson.
New Orleans dumped Byron Scott early during the regular season and interim coach Jeff Bower returned to his general manager duties. The Hornets have met with Johnson, Dallas assistant coach Dwane Casey, former Cleveland coach and current TNT analyst Mike Fratello.
Williams interviewed with Minnesota last season before the Timberwolves hired Kurt Rambis.
