JB Bickerstaff Rumors

Sources said Gottlieb, 41, will sign a four-year contract and is expected to play a prominent role in support of Beilein and associate head coach JB Bickerstaff. Commissioner Adam Silver has been determined for the league to welcome more women’s coaches into its ranks, and Gottlieb’s stature and coaching credentials are unprecedented among women’s coaches in the NBA.

Bickerstaff impressed the Cavaliers during his interview for the head-coaching gig and was considered one of the team’s top candidates until John Beilein agreed to leave the University of Michigan. According to sources, the Cavs put Bickerstaff at the top of their list for Beilein’s No. 1 assistant, but didn’t want to force any coaches on Beilein, instead giving him the freedom to hire his own staff. On Wednesday morning, Beilein and Bickerstaff met for breakfast in Chicago at the Combine and the two hit it off, sources said.
Bickerstaff has been praised for his player development and defensive approach, helping the undermanned Grizzlies finish ninth in defensive rating — a massive improvement from 2017-18 when they ranked 22nd. The Cavs also known him well, as his father, Bernie, is currently a Senior Basketball Advisor with the team.
