Kyrie Irving not looking to discuss job status of coach Byron ScottPosted by Inside Hoops
Cavaliers All-Star guard Kyrie Irving isn’t addressing questions regarding the future of Cleveland coach Byron Scott.
The Cavaliers had dropped 12-of-14 games going into Sunday’s game against Orlando. The recent slide has led to speculation that Scott, who is 63-160 in three seasons, may not be back for a fourth.
Irving, who has spoken about his close relationship with Scott several times during his two seasons with the team, said Sunday he’s thinking more about the final seven games of the Cavaliers’ season rather than the coaching situation.
“Until that time comes, I’m not really worried about it,” Irving said. “To even imagine that, I’m not going down that road. I’m focused on finishing the season with him and that’s all that matters right now.”
