Cleveland Cavaliers interested in hiring Larry Drew to coaching staff

The Milwaukee Bucks started the offseason with Larry Drew as their head coach and didn’t seem to have a whole lot of outward intention of changing that.

But soon came the Jason Kidd saga that no one saw coming and all of a sudden it was Kidd who was the head coach of the Bucks and not Drew. All of that left Drew without a job, but that looks like it could be changing in the near future thanks to the most exciting team in basketball at the moment.

According to NBA scribe Gary Washburn, the Cleveland Cavaliers are talking with former Milwaukee Bucks head coach Larry Drew to see if he’s interested in joining David Blatt’s staff this upcoming season.

The move is actually a pretty smart one, as Blatt can use all the help he can get and if he’s going to have a superstar lineup, having a coaching staff of seasoned veterans is likely going to help. There’s no guarantee that Drew is some magic key, but it’s hard to say he’s not going to be part of the solution when it comes to Cleveland becoming a force once again.
