Phil Handy Rumors

Chris Fedor: Why Kyrie as the guy you’d pick from any team to play with? Jimmy Butler: “I like his game. But more than anything I know Phil Handy and that’s who trains (Kyrie). I know how hard he works and I think someone like that makes you better. I know a lot of guys work hard, but I’ve spent a countless amount of days and hours with Kyrie – even before USA Basketball. I like him as a player, as a human being, really good friend of mine. That’s not knocking anybody else, but the kid can play.”
Additionally, Damon Jones was named a Cavs Assistant Coach, joining Jim Boylan, Mike Longabardi and James Posey. Phil Handy returns as Cavs Director of Player Development/Assistant Coach and Vitaly Potapenko remains as Assistant Director of Player Development. Mike Gerrity has been promoted to Director of Player Development for the Charge and will serve as Player Development Assistant with the Cavs.
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.”
