A person familiar with Cleveland's search says the Cavaliers are in "serious talks" with Byron Scott to be their coach.
After completing interviews with several candidates including
Los Angeles Lakers assistant Brian Shaw, the Cavalier have decided
to "move in the Scott direction," said the person who spoke to
The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the process
is supposed to remain confidential.
The person says Cleveland has not yet offered Scott its job.
"Nothing is done," the person said.
Scott, a two-time NBA coach of the year, was believed to be a
leading candidate to replace Phil Jackson in Los Angeles if he
retired. Jackson is expected to announce his plans later this week.
