The decision came down to Blatt and Clippers assistant coach Tyronn Lue, a long-time NBA player who has been an assistant to Doc Rivers for five years, four of them in Boston. Alvin Gentry, believed to be the third finalist, took a job as the associate head coach of the Golden State Warriors under Steve Kerr. Kerr was considering Blatt for a similar position. The Cavs reportedly also considered either Lue or Gentry as associate/assistant coach. Cleveland Plain Dealer

It's possible the Cavs will hire a rookie head coach, but I wouldn't bet on it. The mandate for new General Manager David Griffin is to make a serious playoff run. A safe guess is that he'll pick between Alvin Gentry, Lionel Hollins and Vinny Del Negro -- three established coaches. There will be another round of interviews for the three veterans and some others in the next week or so, these with owner Dan Gilbert. The Cavs want to have a coach in place for the June 26th draft.
