Cleveland Cavaliers Agree to Deal with Head Coach Larry Drew
The Cavaliers are 1-8, LeBron James is gone, Kevin Love is injured, Collin Sexton has no idea how to play basketball, Tyron Lue has been fired, and neither J.R. Smith nor Kyle Korver have any interest in remaining in Ohio.
Yeah, all this has happened in the span of nine games – it’s real bad.
Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers are desperately looking to right the ship and move the franchise back into the right direction. Larry Drew has taken over for Lue and the Cavaliers have officially agreed to a new deal with the head coach. Per the deal, Drew will remain the head coach of the Cavs until the end of the season. His contract is partially guaranteed for the 2019-20 year. The Cavs will be able to buyout Drew if they decide to move into a different direction next season.
“It’s not going to happen overnight,” commented Drew on the Cavaliers situation.
It has been a difficult campaign to this point for the Cavs and it will be up to Drew to salvage whatever hope remains for this Cavs season.
