Cavs to start coaching search by talking to Howard, Mosley

Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard will meet with the Cavs about their coaching position this week.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will tip off their coaching search by conducting interviews with Miami Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard and Dallas Mavericks assistant coach Jamahl Mosley, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

According to the report, the Cavaliers are expected to hold meetings with assistant coaches on teams taking part in the playoffs at a later date.

Cleveland general manager Koby Altman said in his press conference Thursday he expects to meet with a long list and candidates to fill the shoes of Larry Drew, who had a mutual parting of the ways with the team Wednesday.

Howard joined coach Erik Spoelstra’s staff in Miami after retiring as a player after 19 seasons in 2013. He interviewed for the Detroit Pistons job in 2018.

Mosley has ties to Cleveland, having spent four seasons with the Cavaliers as an assistant before moving on in 2014 to join the Denver Nuggets, with whom he spent three seasons.

  1. Would love to see Boston bounced early and Stevens cut loose.

  2. Yep, That’s EXACTLY what Cav’s need, –An Assistant Coach from a couple of Lusers teams. We already had the best coach for Luesing, In Ty Lue…. but got rid of that one. We Had Larry Drew who was SUPPOSED to lose for the Drafts sake. He didn’t like it, BUT Actually by the end of season he had a “decent” team that DID compete with some fairly good teams & even won a few, almost to the detriment of the draft. But NOW we got to go searching for another Lueser Coach, ah, excuse me, Assistant coach, from a losing team . > >>>> ????? Well I suppose they have to explore all options, right ? Must get one on the cheap, right, since we can’t afford any money going out for a real coach because of all that Lebron salary, Oh wait, that doesn’t work, OR maybe since we don’t expect to get ANY wins, even Next season ??? Even with Zion, or one of the top 3 or so, we’re going to have to Tank again,,,, Come on. Well, that could well be I guess, depending on the pick—ah, Bennett, Waiters…. etc. You could actually go through the NBA & take note of a number of PLAYERS NOT named Lebron, that are Still playing & contributing ON Playoff teams that USED TO BE Cavaliers that we let get away because…… ?
    Think the Front Office needs a ‘HEAD COACH’ ! ! I mean one that explore THEIR Head !
