Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing will interview Thursday for the Charlotte Bobcats’ coaching vacancy, according to an ESPN.com report.

Memphis Grizzlies assistant Dave Joerger will interview Friday, sources told ESPN.

Ewing is a close friend of Bobcats’ owner Michael Jordan and an assistant coach for the Orlando Magic. The organization has already spoken with Golden State assistant Mike Malone and Cleveland assistant Nate Tibbetts.

The Bobcats are seeking a coach with an emphasis on developing young players. Mike Dunlap, the associate head coach to Steve Lavin at St. John’s University, interviewed on Wednesday.

The process is expected to last several weeks. The team is also interested in Indiana assistant Brian Shaw, former Portland and Seattle coach Nate McMillan, and former Utah coach Jerry Sloan, sources told ESPN.com.
