Former Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan met with Bobcats owner Michael Jordan and other members of the Bobcats front office on Friday to discuss the team's head coaching vacancy, reports Brad Rock of the Deseret News. Sloan stated that the Bobcats did not offer him the position but did not discount the possibility that the two sides could be a match even though the Bobcats only won seven games during the 2011/2012 season. Let's check in on the latest Sloan-related news and rumors as we head into Memorial Day Weekend.
- Sam Amick of SI.com (via Twitter) had the opportunity to speak with Sloan after his interview with the Bobcats and says the Hall of Fame coach isn't sure whether the franchise is leaning a particular way with other candidates to consider. "Everything went fine. There wasn't any job offers or anything like that. We visited. He asked me a lot of questions and I asked him a lot of questions. I think they're gonna interview some other people. I don't know."
- Dana Greene of ABC4.com wonders if Sloan is a good candidate for the Bobcats given his age and desire to work with "old-school players." Former Jazz assistant coach Gordon Chiesa says Sloan has the desire to improve a bad situation. "Jerry Sloan is all about discipline, hard work, and getting players to become better. The NBA needs someone like Jerry Sloan, especially a team that needs a new energy level, a new knockout punch. That's Jerry Sloan."
- Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype says (via Twitter) he'd love to be inside of Jerry Sloan's head as he sits through interviews with the Bobcats to better understand why the coach who has accomplished all but winning an NBA championship would be interested in heading up a reclamation project in Charlotte.
