The Cleveland Cavaliers’ exhaustive head coaching search is expanding — again.

Blatt is just the latest candidate to interview with the Cavs, who will have a second meeting with Clippers assistant coach Alvin Gentry on Friday. The team has contacted as many as 12 candidates to fill the vacancy created when owner Dan Gilbert fired Mike Brown — for the second time — on May 12.

Earlier this week, the Cavs interviewed former Cleveland All-Star guard Mark Price, now an assistant with Charlotte.
