The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking at a pair of Los Angeles Clippers assistants to fill the team's head coaching vacancy. Cleveland is set to interview Tyronn Lue and Alvin Gentry in the next two days, according to an Associated Press report.

Lue, who retired in 2009 after an 11-year career, has been an assistant under Doc Rivers with both the Celtics and the Clippers.

ROUNDTABLE: How can the Spurs win Game 5?

Gentry was last a head coach with the Phoenix Suns, who fired him after a 13-28 start to the 2012-13 season. He led the Suns to a 54-28 record and a Western Conference finals appearance in the 2009-10 season, though Phoenix went just 86-103 over the rest of Gentry's tenure. The 2013-'14 season was Gentry's first with the Clippers.

The Cavaliers fired Mike Brown just one year into a five-year deal after a 33-49 season and failure to make the playoffs in the weak Eastern Conference. Cleveland is looking for its third head coach in three years.
