The two discussed the head coaching vacancy left open following the departure of Mike D'Antoni after this past season.
The 60-year-old Dunleavy, who last coached in the NBA from 2003-2010 with the Los Angeles Clippers, also reportedly sat down in May with New York Knicks President of Basketball of Operations Phil Jackson to discuss possibly becoming the head coach in New York.
Dunleavy has coached four teams in his two decades in the NBA, starting with the Lakers from 1990-92, a stint in which he led the team to the Finals in 1991. He won the NBA Coach of the Year award in 1999 with the Portland Trail Blazers and also coached the Milwaukee Bucks from 1992-96. Overall, he has a .461 winning percentage in the regular season as a head coach.MANNIX: Wiggins, Embiid, Parker lead post-lottery Mock Draft
