BREAKING NEWS: Cavaliers Fire Coach David Blatt

The Cleveland Cavaliers Have Fired Coach David Blatt

Ty Lue, Blatt’s top assistant, has agreed to a three-year deal to become the team’s new head coach, sources told Yahoo. LeBron James and his agent, Rich Paul, had been strong advocates of Lue becoming head coach since last season.

Blatt’s dismissal comes one season after he helped guide the Cavs to the 2015 NBA Finals in his first year as an NBA coach. Cleveland leads the Eastern Conference with a 30-11 record and has won 11 of its past 13 games.

Blatt joins Byron Scott as the only coaches since 2000 to be fired midseason after leading their teams to the Finals the previous season.

The Cavs hired Blatt as head coach in June 2014, about two weeks before James decided to leave the Miami Heat and return to Cleveland. Blatt had been a successful coach in the Euroleague, most recently with Maccabi Tel Aviv, but did not have NBA experience before the Cavs hired him. He also coached Russia’s national team to the bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics.

 Blatt leaves the Cavs with a career record of 83-40 in the NBA.
