CLEVELAND -- For the first time since 2014, the Cleveland Cavaliers will spend their offseason searching a new head coach.
Last week, the Cavs announced they had mutually parted ways with Larry Drew, who served as the team's head coach for the final 76 games of the 2018-19 season following the in-season firing of Tyronn Lue. With that, the Cavs will open a formal coaching search to find their 22nd head coach in franchise history.
Who is Cleveland general manager Koby Altman talking to and who, ultimately, will the Cavs hire? Keep it locked here for the latest news and rumors regarding the Cavs' coaching search.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cavs are planning to schedule interviews with Miami Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard and Dallas Mavericks assistant Jamahl Mosley in the coming weeks.
Meeting with reporters at Cleveland Clinic Courts, Altman discusses what he's looking for in a coaching candidate and the team's timetable for the upcoming search.
"We want to make sure we get this right," Altman said. "We also want to make sure we get to know these candidates really really well, flush this thing out and I hate to keep using this word, but make sure it's the right fit.
"Make sure it's the right fit for our front office, for our players, for our fanbase. We want availability, grinding -- all that kind of stuff. We want to make sure that's the right fit and for that person, that we're the right fit for them too."
