Author: Chris Fedor
"CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Cleveland Cavaliers have finalized their coaching staff for the 2014-15 season.
First-year head coach David Blatt will be joined by associate head coach Tyronn Lue, who was lured away from the Los Angeles Clippers earlier this off-season, and assistants Jim Boylan, Bret Brielmaier, Larry Drew and James Posey.
Boylan, an assistant with the Cavs last season, brings much-needed NBA coaching experience. Prior to joining the Cavaliers, he spent five seasons as the lead assistant coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. He served as the interim coach for the final 50 games of the 2012-13 season. He started his NBA coaching career with the Cavaliers in 1992." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
