Blazers hope to begin coach candidate interviews this week

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) The Portland Trail Blazers are compiling a list of possible candidates to replace coach Terry Stotts and general manager Neil Olshey said Monday that he hopes to start conducting a first round of virtual interviews this week.

Rumors swirled this weekend about possible candidates after Stotts was fired Friday, a day after the Blazers were eliminated by the Denver Nuggets in the opening round of the playoffs, but Olshey said the team is still preparing the list to give to team owner Jody Allen.

"We're running a very expansive, diverse search. We'll probably have anywhere from 20 to 25 candidates in there with biographical data, background, intel, impact studies, coaching records, playing records, etc., so that we all are speaking the same language as we vet these candidates," he said. "I have not reached out to any teams or agents to request permission to conduct formal interviews until we've had a chance to review all those materials."
