Former NBA guard JJ Redick will be interviewed by the Hornets for their head coaching position, The Athletic’s Shams Charania tweets.

Redick is currently a podcaster and analyst for ESPN. This isn’t the first time he has been a head coaching candidate. The Raptors interviewed him for their head coaching job last May.

Redick scored over 12,000 points in his NBA career. He retired after the 2020/21 season.

He joins a lengthy list of candidates for the opening.

Former Vanderbilt and G League coach Jerry Stackhouse, Lakers assistant Jordan Ott, Houston’s Royal IveyDenver’s David Adelman, Boston’s Charles Lee, the Clippers’ Jay Larranaga, Phoenix’s Kevin Young and Kings G League coach Lindsey Harding have also been identified as candidates.

Jordi Fernandez was also on the Hornets’ list before he was hired as the Nets’ head coach.

Steve Clifford announced prior to the end of the season that he’d be stepping down. He’s reportedly transitioning to a consulting role in Charlotte.
