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.

Once free agency starts on Sunday, the Houston Rockets are planning to recruit Jimmy Butler to push the Philadelphia 76ers for a sign-and-trade deal that would allow the All-Star forward to join James Harden and Chris Paul, league sources tell ESPN.

The Rockets don’t have the salary-cap space to sign Butler, so they’d need the threat of the Sixers losing him for nothing to a team with the available room to motivate the Sixers into a trade. The Rockets would also potentially need to make this a multiteam deal to satisfy the rules of Base Year Compensation that would cover Butler’s outgoing salary.
