NBA Rumors: Mark Price to interview for Cleveland Cavaliers' coaching job

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Mark Price may be coming back to the Cavalier family sooner rather than later.

The Cavaliers will be interviewing former star point guard Mark Price tomorrow, per Mary Schmitt Boyer and Jodie Valade of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The tweet does not mention if it's for the head coaching job or simply an assistant gig, but one would assume that it's for the vacant head coaching position.

Price has been an NBA coach in various roles since 2007, starting as a player development/shooting coach for the Denver Nuggets, Golden State Warriors, and Atlanta Hawks. This season, he became a full-fledged assistant for the Charlotte Bobcats under Steve Clifford. He was mostly a player development guy still, working specifically with Kemba Walker and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

It's always a good idea to keep legends like Price in the family, so granting him an interview for the position is a smart decision. I'm of the opinion that he hasn't really cut his teeth yet enough as an assistant to deserve a head coaching job, but you could do worse than hiring him as a lead assistant to work specifically with Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters in the pick-and-roll. In that capacity, I'm actually completely in favor of a Price hire.

However, there are more qualified candidates out there for a head coaching position than Price. But if the Cavs are looking to make a splash with their fan base, Price could be an interesting choice to energize the organization.
