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.

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.)

Last year, Howard interviewed for the top coaching job with the New York Knicks — a spot that went to David Fizdale, who also was an assistant coach with the Heat.
