Ham has also interviewed for the Lakers’ vacancy, as we relayed previously. This reportedly will be his second interview with the Hornets.

He also is the second name whose candidacy has been reported as “strong.” Last week, former Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni was mentioned as the “frontrunner” for the job.

No matter, it is pretty clear the Hornets are moving closer to hiring a coach and Ham is undoubtedly in the running.

Ham has assisted Mike Budenholzer for the entire four seasons with the Bucks, and five years before that with the Hawks. He has also been an assistant with the Lakers and spent the 2010-11 season as head coach of the New Mexico Thunderbirds of the G League.

Ham spent eight seasons as a player in the NBA, winning a championship with the Pistons in 2004.

The Hornets are looking to replace James Borrego, fired after three seasons. Former Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts is also believed to be a candidate.
