The Cleveland Cavaliers asked for — and were granted — permission to interview Denver Nuggets assistant Jordi Fernandez for their head coaching position, league sources told cleveland.com on Thursday evening.

A source said an interview hadn’t been set up yet and the Cavs will respect Fernandez and the Nuggets, who are in the midst of the Western Conference semifinals. But Fernandez has always been viewed as a person of interest for the job and a source told cleveland.com last week that the Cavs were likely to reach out following Denver’s first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs, which went seven games.
