Cleveland Cavaliers, Larry Drew agree on new head coaching deal

Cleveland Cavaliers, Larry Drew agree on new head coaching deal

The team stands at 1-7, Kevin Love will miss a major chunk of time due to injury, and head coach Tyronn Lue was sacked after just six games. But on Friday, the team would announce that Love underwent foot surgery. The team said in statement that Love likely won't return to basketball activity for at least six weeks, potentially pushing his return back multiple months.

The 30-year-old Love played in Cleveland's first four games before the pain became intolerable.

Drew is 1-2 since replacing Tyronn Lue, who was sacked October 28 after an 0-6 start to the season.

Yikes. Keep in mind, the Cavaliers just gave him a four-year extension worth $120 million this past offseason. The short version is that the front office and coaching staff have given players differing messages all season, contempt is brewing between the young players and the veterans, and during all of this the team has managed to win just one game.

It's been quite a week for the Cavs, beginning with Lue's dismissal.

Assistant coach Larry Drew asked the team to restructure his contract if he's going to be the team's "interim" coach and fill in for Lue this season.

The Cavaliers say an age-discrimination lawsuit filed by former assistant coach Jim Boylan is "frivolous" and a "shameless cash grab".

The Cavs dropped to 1-8 on the season on Saturday night, getting blown out by the Charlotte Hornets, 126-94.
