Beloved former Cavaliers star Mark Price, now an assistant with the Charlotte Hornets, will interview for the Cavs head coaching position on Tuesday, three NBA sources told The Plain Dealer.

With the team's coaching search entering its fourth week since Mike Brown was fired on May 12, Price is believed to be the sixth candidate to formally interview with Cavs general manager David Griffin, joining Bulls assistant Adrian Griffin, Clippers assistant Tyronn Lue and former NBA head coaches Alvin Gentry, Lionel Hollins and Vinny Del Negro.

None of the candidates has met with owner Dan Gilbert, and none has a second interview scheduled as of Monday evening, a source said, though Yahoo reported that Gentry and Lue would be interviewed again. The Associated Press also reported Gentry would have a second interview.

Price, 50, is one of the most popular players to ever play for the Cavs. Acquired from the Dallas Mavericks on draft day in 1986 for a second-round pick and other considerations, Price teamed with center Brad Daugherty during the most successful era in Cavs history until LeBron James arrived.

A four-time All-Star and back-to-back winner of the Long Distance Shootout during the 1993 and 1994 All-Star Games, Price is the Cavs all-time leader in assists (4,206), free-throw percentage (90.6) and 3-point field goals made (802). He had his No. 25 retired in 1999.

A native of Enid, Oklahoma, who played for his father, Denny, Price went on to star at Georgia Tech, where he became known for his shooting ability and his pioneering method of splitting a double team.
