Cavs Byron Scott fired

Quote:
Byron Scott was fired today by the Cavaliers, a league source told the Akron Beacon Journal, one day after completing his third season in charge. He departs with a 64-166 record and his .278 winning percentage is the lowest in team history among all coaches (minimum one full season).

Rumors over Scott’s future intensified over the past couple of weeks as the Cavaliers regressed during the month of April, blew big leads throughout the season and gave a sub-par effort on multiple nights.

Owner Dan Gilbert has been unhappy with the Cavs’ lack of defensive improvement over the past three years, one team source said, speaking on condition of anonymity given the sensitivity of the situation, and Gilbert was the driving force behind the firing.

The Cavs were never supposed to win this season, but Gilbert told the Beacon Journal during training camp that this was an important year to see progress.

“I don’t even know what the definition of that is,” Gilbert said in October. “But you’ll know it when you see it.”

The team clearly didn’t show enough of it this year, at least not to the owner’s liking.

The Cavs finished last in the league in defensive field-goal percentage, allowing opponents to shoot better than 47 percent. During Scott’s three years in charge, opponents shot .475, .467 and .476 this season. They never ranked higher than 27th in the league defensively.

The team suffered the two biggest collapses in franchise history this season, blowing a 26-point lead to the Phoenix Suns and a 27-point lead to the Miami Heat in March. They lost to the New York Knicks after leading by 22 points, they blew a 14-point lead to the Boston Celtics during the last eight minutes and then lost to the Indiana Pacers after leading by 20 with nine minutes left. They became the first team in 15 years to lose four games they led by at least 20 points, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

They're interested in bringing back Mike Brown apparently, if so,make way for the return of the King of Ohio in 2014.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have reached out to Phil Jackson to gauge his interest in the team's head coach opening, according to sources.

Jackson is currently considering potential options. The Brooklyn Nets and Sacramento Kings -- if they relocate to Seattle -- could appeal to Jackson more than the Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers have had contact with Jackson after firing Byron Scott last Thursday.

Jackson interviewed with Dan Gilbert in 2005 before the Cavaliers ultimately hired Mike Brown.
