Byron Scott on Cavaliers radar; front office asking former players about him

compiled from staff and wire reports

It seems that the frontrunner for the Cleveland Cavaliers coaching vacancy, is Byron Scott.

But before the front office gives him an offer, they’re going to talk to two of his former players to get some background info, Jason Kidd and Chris Paul.

Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant and assistant Lance Blanks have asked the New Jersey Nets and New Orleans Hornets about his style, demeanor and reputation with the players.

The Cavs have also asked the Nets send every one of their 2002 and 2003 playoff games, including the NBA Finals for review.

Scott had a combative history with Kidd while he coached the Nets and it ultimately led to Scott’s dismissal in 2004. Kidd had a problem with game preparation, nothing personal against Scott.

Chris Paul, on the other had, is a leading supporter of Byron Scott and even lobbied for the New Orleans Hornets not to fire him last season. Paul played in the NBA his first four seasons under Scott and is still close to him.

The Cavaliers are not the only team that Scott is interested in. He is up for the Los Angeles Clippers job and would love a chance to coach his former Lakers’ team should Phil Jackson retire or move on to another team.

In a move that has stunned the city of Cleveland, the NBA and the Cavs players, Ferry decided that the changes in the organization can move forward without him.

Ferry’s departure has come two weeks after owner Dan Gilbert fired coach Mike Brown following the team’s ouster by Boston in the second round of the playoffs. Ferry’s contract was set to expire on June 30 and he decided to leave once he found out after several meetings with Gilbert, that their ideas on the Cavs direction differed in many ways.

Danny Ferry led Cleveland through the most successful period in their history, peaking with the club’s first-ever NBA finals appearance in 2007 against San Antonio. But despite winning 127 regular-season games and having the best-record in the league, the last two years, the Cavs fell short of an NBA title.

Assistant GM Chris Grant will take over for Ferry.
