ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne reported Sunday that Miami Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard will interview for head coaching positions with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lakers have received permission to speak to Juwan Howard, plan interview him next week— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) April 14, 2019
Howard has been an assistant coach for the Heat since 2013, when he retired after playing for the team since the 2010-11 season. Howard, of course, played with LeBron James in Miami — potentially making the Lakers job appealing. (Wojnarowski also said that Philadelphia 76ers assistant Monty Williams is a top candidate for the Lakers job.)
