Report: The Cavaliers' Assistant Coach Doesn't Want To Take Over For Ty Lue


The Cavs may be left without a head coach for some time in the near future after the firing of Tyronn Lue, per reports.

According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, former Cavs assistant coach and now associate head coach Larry Drew hasn't fully agreed to become Cleveland's interim head coach in the wake of Lue's firing.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski further added to this, reporting that Drew would be open to taking the reigns of the team while they get their affairs in order, but doesn't want to become head coach for the rest of the season unless an agreement is put in place to secure his job past this season.

Drew already has some head coaching experience under his belt, owning a 128-102 record (.557) across three seasons as coach of the Atlanta Hawks from 2010 through 2013. Drew also coached the Milwaukee Bucks, but was quickly replaced by Jason Kidd after a 15-win season in 2013-14.
