The Cavaliers seem intent on making Tom Izzo their next Head Coach. If they fail to persuade him to leave Michigan State, however, it appears Byron Scott could be next on the list.
According to ESPN.com, Scott is actually on equal footing with Izzo in the eyes of the Cavaliers.
Scott, who has coached the New Jersey Nets and the New Orleans Hornets, has spoken with members of the Cavaliers’ front office for the past few days and late Wednesday night, the talks took on a more serious nature. Scott is expected to have a formal interview with the team before the end of this weekend.
It could be the Cavaliers are making sure they have an insurance policy in case Izzo’s flirtations end they way they always have, with him staying at MSU.
