Bulls assistant coach Adrian Griffin will interview for the Cavaliers' vacant head coaching position on Tuesday.

Griffin, who has also been linked to the Utah Jazz, faces competition from Tyronn Lue, Lonel Hollins, and possibly Alvin Gentry. The Cleveland Plain Dealer also writes that Chauncey Billups may receive "some consideration" for the position, though Billups' desire is to become a GM rather than a coach.

Chicago Bulls assistant coach Adrian Griffin and Los Angeles Clippers associate head coach Alvin Gentry have emerged as serious candidates to land the Utah Jazz head coaching gig, according to multiple reports.

Each coach has very different styles, with Gentry specializing in offense, and defense being Griffin's calling card. It'll be interesting to see which coaching philosophy wins the Utah gig, but GM Dennis Lindsey has made it known that he is in no hurry to make a final decision. "We’re not going to talk about who and what and when and where," Lindsey said. "But we’re very comfortable with the level of coach that’s out there... I think we’ll come up with a good coach."

The Jazz were given permission on Tuesday to interview Bulls' assistant coach Adrian Griffin for their head coaching vacancy, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Griffin has been an assistant coach in the NBA since 2008. He spent two seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks and has been an assistant under Tom Thibodeau since 2010. The Jazz have been looking for a new coach since the firing of Ty Corbin back in April. Utah has a few good young pieces to build around, including Trey Burke, Derrick Favors, and restricted free agent Gordon Hayward, so they will be in rebuilding mode for the 2014-15 season.

Oklahoma City traded Adrian Griffin to the Bucks on Wednesday.

In total, Griffin scored 65 points in the 2007-2008 season. He is a nice role-player with some defensive skills, but won’t be able to help fantasy owners in Milwaukee or anywhere else.

Adrian Griffin started Sunday's game against the Lakers in place of injured Luol Deng (back). Griffin failed to score and committed four fouls in 13 minutes of play.

Scott Skiles suggested that he would play his veterans more, so despite Griffin's poor performance, he might continue to start. Tyrus Thomas shot 1-of-6 in 13 minutes and his value has taken a serious nose-dive in the past week, but wait a little while longer before deciding whether to cut Thomas.
