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.

Sources: Victor Oladipo to Opt Out of NBA Restart

Indiana Pacers star Victor Oladipo has decided to sit out the resumed 2019-20 NBA season, telling The Athletic on Friday he can’t get his mind “to being fully comfortable” in playing.

“I really want to play, and as a competitor and teammate this is tearing me apart,” Oladipo said. “I feel like I’m at a great place in my rehab and getting closer and closer to 100 percent. With all the variables, from how I have to build my 5-on-5 workload back up, to the increased risk of a soft tissue injury which could delay my rehab, and the unknown exact set up of the bubble, I just can’t get my mind to being fully comfortable in playing. I have to be smart and this decision hasn’t been easy, but I truly believe continuing on the course I’m on and getting fully healthy for the 2020-21 season is the right decision for me.”

Oladipo has one year left on his four-year, $84 million deal with the Pacers. Sources said Oladipo plans to travel with the team to Orlando despite his decision to opt out of playing, and that he will continue his rehab, support his teammates and join them inside the bubble environment.
