Byron Scott Accepts Offer To Coach Cavaliers

New, comments

While we have no idea what kind of team the Cavaliers will put on the floor next season, we do finally know who will be the head coach.  Byron Scott, whose went from lead candidate, to the back-backburner, back to lead candidate again in 48 hours, has accepted an offer from the team to become their next Head Coach.

Scott's agent Brian McInerney said in an e-mail that the sides are working through some final details, but that Scott has agreed to become Cleveland's next coach -- with or without free agent LeBron James.

The team is expected to announce Scott's hiring later on Thursday, just as James hits the market and begins hearing offers from other teams.
