The Kings are continuing their search for a new head coach after letting go of George Karl. And Sacramento's front office has reportedly added a Hall of Fame big man to their list of candidates.
Patrick Ewing, who's the current associate head coach for the Charlotte Hornets, will interview for the Kings' head coaching vacancy, according to a national report.
The Hornets play the Heat in Game 7 of Round 1 in the Eastern Conference playoffs Sunday.
Before joining Steve Clifford's staff in Charlotte prior to the 2013 season, Ewing was an assistant for two other teams. Ewing was an assistant coach for the Houston Rockets (2003-07) and Orlando Magic (2007-12).
While his coaching responsibilities have been raised in recent years, Ewing is known best for his playing days.
In his 17-year career, Ewing averaged 21 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game. He was named to 11 All-Star teams as a New York Knick and was inducted into the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame in 2008.
Ewing interviewed to be the Hornets' head coach in 2011 and also the Detroit Pistons' the same year and didn't win the job for either team.
The Kings have officially interviewed Kevin McHale, Vinny Del Negro, Mike Woodson, and Sam Mitchell to be their next head coach.
Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical was first to report Ewing will interview for the job.
