Cleveland, OH, United States (4E Sports) – The Cleveland Cavaliers are expecting Larry Drew to join their coaching staff after his bitter separation with the Milwaukee Bucks, leading the franchise to its worst record, 15-67.

Drew was fired from head coaching duties in Milwaukee after the organization hired Jason Kidd.

He was the head coach of the Atlanta Hawks for three seasons before being the main man on the side-line for the Bucks.

Drew started his coaching career in 1992 as an assistant for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Cavs and head coach David Blatt are looking forward to Drew’s contribution to the team, which is primarily his veteran experience.

This off-season, the Cavs also acquired long-time Doc Rivers’ assistant Tyronn Lue.

Lue and Rivers have been together for five years with the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Rivers wanted to still work with Lue, but the offer coming from Cleveland that will make him the highest-paid assistant in the league is hard to decline.

Jim Boylan, a former interim for the Bucks and the Chicago Bulls will also be a part of Blatt’s staff.

Besides from boosting up the team’s roster, the Cavs are also adding experienced coaches to help Blatt in his first stint in the NBA.
