According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard, the Cavaliers have reached out to former Warriors coach Mark Jackson about their head coaching vacancy. Jackson was fired by Golden State on May 6, despite a 121-109 overall record, consecutive playoff appearances in 2013 and 2014, and winning 51 games this past season.
Sources: Cavs contact Mark Jackson about head coaching position. No formal interview set up. Not clear how serious Cavs' interest is.— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) June 12, 2014
Before we get too caught up in a potential Jackson-to-Cleveland scenario, it’s important to remember just how many people the Cavs have had talks with. The list includes, but is not limited to: Alvin Gentry, Tyronn Lue, Lionel Hollins, Vinny Del Negro, Adrian Griffin, Mark Price, and John Calipari. There are also rumors linking them to former Maccabi Tel Aviv coach David Blatt.
Really, as long as they don’t hire Mike Brown again, we’re cool with it.
