CLEVELAND (AP) -- Mark Price's limited head-coaching experience may not matter to the Cavaliers.
A four-time All-Star point guard during nine seasons with Cleveland, Price interviewed Tuesday with the Cavs, who fired Mike Brown nearly a month ago and have been on a twisting search for his successor. Price spent last season as an assistant in Charlotte and Hornets coach Steve Clifford believes the 50-year-old is ready to be a head coach.
Price's only head coaching jobs were in Australia in 2005 and with Orlando's summer league team.
There's been a recent trend of NBA teams signing unproven coaches. The hirings of Steve Kerr and Derek Fisher -- former guards without extensive head coaching resumes -- could prompt the Cavaliers to take a shot with Price.
Price is the sixth known candidate to meet with the Cavs.
