A time for interviews

Ron Artest is at it again.
The Kings small forward who has been doubling as a radio and TV personality of late is scheduled to go on with KHTK's Carmichael Dave again tonight for another round of late-night merriment. This time it will be by phone at around 9:30 p.m., Dave tells me, as Artest is out of town.
Last time, however, it was three hours of studio time that was supposedly pretty rich. Truthfully, I haven't listened yet, but all of the content is readily available here.
On a more serious interview note, Kings assistant Chuck Person departs for Chicago tomorrow to interview for the Bulls' head coaching job. While Person declined to comment on the matter, a team source tells me he will meet with general manager John Paxson over the weekend. He is one of four candidates who will be interviewed this week, with more expected next week in Orlando during pre-draft camp.
The Bulls' job was already a highly-coveted one because of the young and athletic roster, but the job looks even better after Chicago jumped from the No. 9 spot in Tuesday's draft lottery to land the No. 1 pick. Bulls general manager John Paxson, who fired interim coach Jim Boylan on April 17, told the Chicago media that he's taking his time with the coaching search.
"I have nothing to lose," Paxson said. "I want to listen to philosophies. All the guys I have coming in, I've told them I want to know what you're about basketball-wise, how you're going to teach, how you're going to connect and communicate with players. I'm not in a hurry. When I know it's right, it's going to be right."
Person was expected to be considered for the New York Knicks opening before Mike D'Antoni became available and was quickly given the position. - Sam Amick
