Cavs offer head coaching job to Blatt

Posted: Updated:

The Cavaliers have found their man. According to multiple reports, the team offered the head coaching job to David Blatt on Thursday night, and could make an official announcement on Friday.

Blatt, an offensive whiz, recently stepped down as the head coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv. He was also courted by Steve Kerr to be his lead assistant with the Golden State Warriors.

Early Thursday, ESPN reported that the Cavs had narrowed their list to two, Blatt and Tyronn Lue, who has met with the Cavs extensively, and who's on the short list because of the way he connects well with players.

But the job now belongs to Blatt, if and when the two sides finalize a deal.
