The Tuesday night interview between Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling and Byron Scott went very well, according to sources with knowledge of the meeting.
Sterling will meet with Brian Shaw on Wednesday. He met with the Clippers' other coaching candidate, Lionel Hollins, last week.
A decision could be made as soon as Friday, or Sterling may take the entire weekend to mull over his choices, sources said.
Until the Clippers name a coach, there remains an outside chance that they rekindle talks with Boston about Doc Rivers. But for now, the Clippers are moving on as though any potential transaction with the Celtics is dead.
Sterling and Scott met at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills and watched Tuesday's epic Game 6 between the Spurs and the Heat in its entirety.
Clippers president Andy Roeser, general manager Gary Sacks and Sterling's wife also attended the meeting.
Sterling asked Scott many basketball questions and reminisced about how the Clippers drafted Scott back in 1983. Sterling joked about the possibility of Scott coming full circle with the franchise.
Scott, who grew up in Los Angeles, was traded to the Lakers for Norm Nixon before ever playing a game for the then San Diego Clippers.
