Sloan, according to the report, met with Bobcats owner Michael Jordan and other members of the team's front office in Utah on Friday. Sloan told the Deseret News he had not yet been offered the position.

"They might come back, they might not," Sloan said. "I can't judge that. We'll just have to wait and see where it goes from there. ... They want to make a decision when they can, and do all their homework."

The 70-year-old Sloan spent 23 seasons with the Jazz before resigning in February 2011. He hasn't coached since.

Sloan is the ninth known candidate, joining Patrick Ewing, Nate McMillan, Dave Joerger, Mike Malone, Nate Tibbetts, Mike Dunlap and Stephen Silas. The Bobcats also plan to interview Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw.

The Bobcats finished the season an NBA-worst 7-59.
