The Cleveland Cavaliers are moving into the second round of interviews for their vacant head coaching position, with Los Angeles Clippers assistants Alvin Gentry and Tyronn Lue both scheduled to meet with owner Dan Gilbert, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Cleveland fired head coach Mike Brown just one season into his second coaching stint with the team, after the Cavs failed to make the playoffs with a 33-49 record.

Wojnarowski also reports that the Cavaliers have remained in touch with Florida Gators coach Billy Donovan, but that the team feels it is unlikely he will make the jump to the NBA. Donovan agreed to a contract to coach the Orlando Magic in 2007, but changed his mind shortly after a press conference announcing the deal and remained with Florida.

Lue has yet to serve as a head coach in the NBA, but has worked with Doc Rivers on both the Clippers and Boston Celtics benches following an 11-year NBA playing career. Gentry was most recently the head coach of the Phoenix Suns from 2009-2013 and has nine years head coaching experience.
