Larry Drew Rumors
Indeed, Larry Drew, Mike Longabardi, Jim Boylan, James Posey, Phil Handy, and Vitaly Potapenko are all coming back to Lue’s bench. Former Cavs guard and LeBron James’ friend Damon Jones is also joining as an assistant, replacing Bret Brielmaier, who as previously reported got a promotion when he joined Brooklyn Nets coach Kenny Atkinson’s staff.
Q: How much did the Cavs pursue you? Joe Johnson: “They made an effort. I got a lot of what I would call family over there as far as Tyronn Lue and Larry Drew, guys that I played with. I know those guys fairly well.” Q: Did LeBron talk to you? Johnson: “Yeah, he reached out to me. That was basically it. He reached out.”
