Report: Four finalists for Blazers coaching job

Jason Quick of The Oregonian reports that the Portland Trail Blazers are down to four finalists for their vacant head coach position: interim coach Kaleb Canales, former Orlando Magic assistant Steve Clifford, Dallas Mavericks assistant Terry Stotts and Phoenix Suns assistant Elston Turner.

Stotts, who spent a total of four seasons guiding the Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks, is the only one with head-coaching experience, other than the interim stint turned in by Canales.

Quick writes that all four will have second interviews in Portland next week, and general manager Neil Olshey will then make a recommendation to owner Paul Allen.

Quick later reported on Twitter the potential for an additional candidate:
