Chris Haynes: “The assistant coaches of Cleveland Cavaliers’ head coach Tyronn Lue obviously they still don’t have a contract in place. People I’ve spoken with, they have told me that frustration is at its worst regarding why they do not have contracts. Their contracts expired July 1st. Assistant coach Damian Jones, Phil Handy, James Posey, Jim Boylan and to a certain extent, Larry Drew. Frustration is mounting. It’s at an unbelievable point, that’s how it has been described to me.”
Storyline: Cavaliers Front Office
Posey brings championship experience as a player from his time in Boston and Miami so as the team was looking for some kind of edge during shootaround to break out of its current funk, a message was delivered by a two-time champion. And not the one many would expect. “James Posey was great,” Love said. “He spoke up and was very vocal. You never know who it’s going to come from, but it happened to be him today.” Tristan Thompson heard it loud and clear as well. “He had some good phrases but I can’t say it,” Thompson said. “But simply just, we control what goes on on the court. If we’re bad or we’re not playing well, it’s up to us as players. The coaches are not out there playing. It’s up to us as players to take ownership and be men and go out there and compete.”
