Brooklyn Nets assistant Mike D'Antoni is getting a second interview for the Portland Trail Blazers' head coaching vacancy, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

San Antonio Spurs assistant Becky Hammon and the Los Angeles Clippers' Chauncey Billups are reportedly through the next round of interviews as well.

D'Antoni spent the 2020-21 campaign on Steve Nash's staff after a four-year run with the Houston Rockets. He holds a 672-527 regular-season mark and a 54-56 postseason record.

The two-time NBA Coach of the Year guided the Phoenix Suns to a pair of West finals appearances during the mid-2000s with his run-and-gun style offense.

Houston won a playoff series in each of D'Antoni's four campaigns as head coach and was one victory away from advancing to the 2018 NBA Finals.
