  1. Cavs hire former Suns executive David Griffin as head of the basketball side

    Sep 13, 2010, 2:27 PM EST

    David Griffin has signed on for some rebuilding. Former Suns executive Griffin has been hired as the new Vice President of Basketball Operations for the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to ESPN. Griffin left Phoenix with Steve Kerr. He had been the frontrunner to take over as general manager in Denver, when talks reportedly hit a snag…

  2. New Cavs could mean a fresh start for Boobie Gibson

    Aug 29, 2010, 10:36 AM EST

    In Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson scored 31 points. And was never heard from again. Okay, that’s not exactly true. He scored 22 the next year in a first round series with Washington, but for the most part, he was buried behind Mo Williams and Delonte West. Coach Mike Brown…

  3. One Cavalier to watch: J.J. Hickson

    Aug 6, 2010, 3:27 PM EST

    While the Cavaliers were losing to the Boston Celtics, J.J. Hickson spent a lot of time watching. Hickson played just shy of 21 minutes a game during last regular season, but that dropped to 7.2 minutes per game in the playoffs. Plenty of people wanted to know why. Byron Scott is not going to make…

  4. Byron Scott: "75 to 85 percent chance" Cavaliers keep LeBron

    Jul 6, 2010, 3:05 PM EST

    Byron Scott is in. All in. Either way. But given the choice, “do you want to coach LeBron or not?” The answer is yes. And he told Mason and Ireland on ESPN Radio in Los Angeles he has a good shot. “If I’m going by my gut feeling I would say there is a 75…

  5. Byron Scott is your new Cleveland Cavaliers coach

    Jul 1, 2010, 3:00 AM EST

    And suddenly, Byron Scott is the new coach of LeBron James. Or a team headed to the lottery. Check back in a few days for the answer. Either way, Byron Scott is the new coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, as Scott’s agent confirmed to FanHouse. Yesterday, all signs pointed to Lakers assistant coach Brian Shaw…

  6. Report: Byron Scott in, Brian Shaw out as head coach of Cavaliers

    Jun 30, 2010, 8:55 PM EST

    Cleveland sure looks like one well-oiled machine as they get ready to make their pitch to LeBron James for free agency. After a couple days of hearing how it was just a matter of negotiating a deal with Lakers assistant Brian Shaw, it appears the tables have turned. Shaw was known to be reaching out…

  7. Byron Scott waits on no man. Not even Phil Jackson or LeBron James. So he says.

    Jun 28, 2010, 4:28 PM EST

    Don’t believe what you read. Because what you read would say Byron Scott is waiting to see what Phil Jackson does about the Lakers job (because Scott has said before he covets that job) and what LeBron James plans to do in Cleveland (because that would be the prudent thing to do). Once he has…

  8. If Phil Jackson steps down, the Lakers need to go with Brian Shaw

    Jun 25, 2010, 2:08 PM EST

    For the next week, Lakers fans are heading to their local churches and lighting candles with a prayer that Phil Jackson decides to stay on to coach the Lakers. Fans are nervous, they are doing anything they can — meditating on it, offering rum to Jobu, burning incense to please the gods. There are PETA…

  9. Byron Scott to get second interview in Cleveland, but Cavs not moving fast

    Jun 17, 2010, 10:42 AM EST

    After tonight, Byron Scott has nothing to do for a while. His duties as an analyst with ESPN will be done and he will have a lot more free time on his hands. Enough time to squeeze in a second interview with the Cavaliers, according to Brian Windhorst at the Cleveland Plain Dealer. But while…

  10. Izzo is out, who is behind curtain number two in Cleveland?

    Jun 16, 2010, 3:13 PM EST

    And behind curtain number two we have…. No idea. Byron Scott is the only other name we know. But now that Tom Izzo has made the smart play and decided not to risk one of the better jobs in college basketball on the whims of LeBron James, the Cavaliers could go back to square one…

  11. Byron Scott now the guy in line behind Tom Izzo for Cavaliers coaching job

    Jun 10, 2010, 9:08 AM EST

    Cavaliers’ owner Dan Gilbert is a Michigan State graduate, and on that campus Tom Izzo walks on water. That’s how a college coach with plenty of questions about how he would succeed in the NBA has become the guy at the center of the Cleveland coaching discussion. But now Byron Scott is the other guy…

  12. Avery Johnson is the front-runner for the Nets job

    Jun 7, 2010, 1:16 PM EST

    The Nets are still talking to other candidates and keeping their options open, but the scuttlebutt is the job is going to Avery Johnson. Even Byron Scott — a man really looking for a chance to return to the NBA, but with almost no chance of returning to New Jersey — thinks so, and that’s…

  13. Bulls new coach: playoff experience required. Apply within.

    May 10, 2010, 12:57 PM EST

    The Bulls are taking their time with their coaching search — which is a smart thing. More than any other franchise out there looking right now, Chicago has the sexy foundation and chance to draw a top free agent that could bring coaches out of the woodwork. No need to rush and interview all the…

  14. Byron Scott will not be your next Sixers coach

    May 7, 2010, 10:06 AM EST

    While the coaching carousel is just starting to spin for this summer, the list of guys getting interview has become pretty standardized. Tom Thibodeau, Dwane Casey, Doug Collins, Mark Jackson, Byron Scott — these guys all get calls. Except in Philadelphia, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. The 76ers do not plan to contact Byron Scott…

  15. Vinny Del Negro still appears to be on chopping block, but Bulls taking their sweet time

    May 3, 2010, 9:16 AM EST

    Sunday — maybe over a nice brunch that included crab omelets and mimosas — Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro and team owner Jerry Reinsdorf sat down and talked. Vinny made his case, which should have included the sentence, “You gave me a crap roster that kept getting injured and I still got you to the…

  16. Don't mind him, Vinny Del Negro, Byron Scott is just measuring the Bulls' coach office space

    Apr 22, 2010, 12:23 AM EST

    You do realize that this was the most dominant franchise in sports 13 years ago, right? That this is the Chicago Bulls? The standard of excellence in the NBA for a decade, give or take a Jordan retirement? And now, down 0-2 to the top seed, dealing with the ramifications of their GM shoving their…

  17. Hornets to look for new coach, Jeff Bower to return to GM role

    Apr 20, 2010, 2:18 PM EST

    Jeff Bower has had his taste of poetic justice, and now is returning to his traditional role. The Hornets General Manager will give up his coaching duties and return to the front office as GM, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. He will lead the search for the next Hornets coach (which we assume must be…
