Last night, it looked like Brian Shaw was the "front-runner" to be the next head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. My, how quickly and dramatically things can change. Tonight, multiple reports state that former New Jersey Nets and New Orleans Hornets coach Byron Scott is now on track to be the team's next head coach.
Chris Broussard of ESPN.com tweeted it first Wednesday evening.
Sam Amick of Fanhouse.com tweeted similar information soon after.
Brian Shaw's agent, Jerome Stanley, tells FanHouse that he withdrew his name from consideration this afternoon.
Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer tweeted a similar report just minutes later.
After a series of meetings today the #Cavs have started contract talks with Byron Scott. No deal is done yet but sides moving that way.
Head over to SB Nation's Fear The Sword for all the latest Cavs talk.
