JB Bickerstaff Rumors
Darren Wolfson: The Rubio trade will lead to more action from the #Timberwolves. They create some $$ flexibility in this trade. Cavs coach Bickerstaff loves Rubio, worked with him here for a year before he left for Houston.
Sources say the Cavs believe Mobley can thrive at 4 or 5. That versatility would give head coach J.B. Bickerstaff some intriguing lineup combinations. When Mobley’s not playing alongside Allen, the youngster could assume backup center minutes, especially if the organization can’t work something out with Isaiah Hartenstein, who is expected to decline his player option.
Kelsey Russo: #Cavs J.B. Bickerstaff on Collin Sexton’s ejection from the game for the flagrant foul 2 called on Sexton: “It was disappointing for Collin. I know that’s not the way he wanted to end the season.” Sexton scored 16 points and dished 5 assists in the loss to the Nets.
Perturbed over what they consider an egregious missed call against center Jarrett Allen late in the fourth quarter of Friday’s 120-105 loss to the Washington Wizards, the Cleveland Cavaliers submitted video and reached out to the league office Saturday morning, expressing their feelings and asking for coach J.B. Bickerstaff’s technical foul to be rescinded, sources tell cleveland.com.
Lindsay Gottlieb: “I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve as an Assistant Coach with the Cavaliers for the last two years. This has truly been a basketball dream come true for me to work not only in the NBA, but hand-in-hand with this incredible coaching staff that has taught me so much. I’d especially like to thank Koby Altman and J.B. Bickerstaff for believing in me and providing an inclusive environment to enhance my coaching acumen.”
