Report: Bobcats interviewing Magic assistant Ewing on Thursday wire reports

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Two people familiar with the situation say the Bobcats will interview Orlando assistant Patrick Ewing on Thursday in Charlotte for their vacant head coaching position.

The people say Charlotte will interview Memphis assistant Dave Joerger on Friday. The people spoke to the Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't publicly announced its list of candidates.

Bobcats owner Michael Jordan is friends with Ewing, but is not expected to sit in on the interview. General manager Rich Cho and president of basketball operations Rod Higgins have handled interviews so far.

Charlotte has interviewed assistant coaches Michael Malone from Golden State, Cleveland's Nate Tibbetts, St. John's Mike Dunlap and expressed interest in Indiana's Brian Shaw.

Bobcats assistant Stephen Silas, son of former coach Paul Silas, has also interviewed.
