Default New Cavs coach is David Blatt

The Cavaliers went outside the box, and outside the country to find their new coach.

The club ended a wide-ranging 39-day search on Friday by agreeing on a contract with successful European coach David Blatt, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team is not commenting.

Terms of Blatt's contract were not immediately known. The Cleveland Plain Dealer was first to report the Cavs coming to terms with Blatt.

Default Re: New Cavs coach is probably David Blatt

One of Europe’s top coaches, Blatt was hired Friday by the Cavaliers, who ended a sweeping, 39-day search with an out-of-the-box selection they hope changes their fortunes.

American-born, Princeton-schooled and considered one of the game’s brightest offensive minds, the 55-year-old Blatt has long been interested in coaching in the NBA and the Cavs will give him his first shot.

The club signed him to a reported three-year deal that includes a team option for a fourth year. Cleveland contacted high-profile college coaches and interviewed both retreaded head coaches and on-the-rise assistants before zeroing in and landing Blatt, who won several European titles while coaching in Israel and guided Russia to a bronze medal at the London Olympics two years ago.
