Report: Cavaliers reach Out To Jason Kidd, Chris Paul About Scott

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Cavaliers are seeking more information about Byron Scott, the Cavaliers’ current heading coaching target, from two fellow NBA All Stars.

As Byron Scott establishes himself as the clear frontrunner for the Cleveland Cavaliers’ coaching vacancy, team executives have reached out to two of LeBron James’ friends – Chris Paul and Jason Kidd – to discuss their former coach.

Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant and assistant GM Lance Blanks made an initial round of calls to New Jersey Nets and New Orleans Hornets officials to research Scott shortly after the firing of Mike Brown, but are now digging deeper as they inch closer to making him a formal offer.
