Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant, made the announcement a short time ago, most were waiting for. The released head coach Byron Scott. The Cavaliers finished the season with a record of 24-58. Scott has been the head coach of the Cavaliers since 2010. He has a record with Cleveland of 64 wins and 166 loses.

Scott led the Cavs to some of the teams longest losing streaks under his watch.

Grant, went on to say, “I have tremendous respect for Byron professionally and a great deal of admiration for him personally. At the same time, it is critical for where we are as a team to ensure that we capitalize on every opportunity for development and success and we have fallen short of that on the court.”

Byron Scott, seemed to take the firing in stride, he had this to say; “I want to thank Chris Grant, Dan Gilbert and the Cavaliers organization for the opportunity I had to coach this team the last three seasons.” “Anita and I have enjoyed our time here in Cleveland and greatly appreciate the support we received from this special community and the many friendships we developed. I am certainly proud of the progress that many of our players have made and greatly appreciate the dedication of my coaches and our team in our efforts to attain the success we all desired.”

With the release of Scott we can only wonder who the next head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers will be. The team said, will immediately commence a search, led by General Manager Chris Grant, for the team’s next head coach.

    That was the worst decision that Chris Grant could have made. This team is still young. No one would have made them better. Just about everyone was getting injured this year. I know this is not an excuss for blowing 20 point leads but once again this is a very young team. We just need more scoring veterns.
