The Hornets have scheduled interviews with three possible candidates, reports ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
According to Wojnarowski, the team will interview former Memphis Grizzles coach David Fizdale as well as San Antonio Spurs assistants Ettore Messina and Ime Udoka.
Messina has been an assistant with the Spurs since 2014. He coached San Antonio in Game 3 of the team's first–round series against the Golden State Warriors and will coach Game 4 after Gregg Popovich's wife died.
Udoka has been on the Spurs' staff since the 2010-11 season.
Fizdale was fired by the Grizzlies in November after a 7–12 start.
The Hornets fired Steve Clifford after a 36–46 season. He coached the team for five seasons.
