Higgins said owner Michael Jordan informed Ewing that the team plans to hire someone other than him to replace Paul Silas.
Exactly who that is remains to be seen.
“Patrick has a lot of great qualities as a coach and he will one day be a head coach,” Higgins said.
The Bobcats will interview Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw on Friday, sources told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard. They will interview Lakers assistant Quin Snyder on June 4. The Bobcats reached out to former Magic coach Stan Van Gundy, but sources say he told them he is thinking about taking next season off.
Other names in the mix for the Bobcats are Golden State assistant Mike Malone, former Utah coach Jerry Sloan, ex-Portland coach Nate McMillan and Cleveland assistant Nate Tibbetts.
Once they conclude that process, they’ll narrow the list down to the final few candidates who will then meet with Jordan face to face before a final decision is made.
Charlotte did not bring back Paul Silas after a 7-59 record this season.
