The Cleveland Cavaliers were granted permission Thursday to interview Denver Nuggets assistant Wes Unseld Jr. for their head coaching vacancy, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Unseld Jr., who is the son of Hall of Fame center Wes Unseld, has been an NBA assistant coach since joining the Washington Wizards in 2005.
The Cavs parted ways with interim head coach Larry Drew after he led them to a 19-57 record in 76 games this season.
