According to Jason Quick of CSNNW, Trail Blazers assistant coach David Vanterpool has interviewed with the Orlando Magic for their head coaching vacancy.

Vanterpool has been with the Trail Blazers since the 2013-14 season. Previously, he was Director of Pro Personnel for the Oklahoma City Thunder for two seasons. Beyond his regular season duties, Vanterpool has also been the representative/head coach for the Trail Blazers at the Las Vegas Summer League.

That now makes three of five Trail Blazers assistant coaches that have interviewed for openings around the league. Jay Triano has already accepted an opportunity to work with the Phoenix Suns and Nate Tibbetts has interviewed with the Memphis Grizzlies.
