(Cleveland) Espn.com is reporting that the Cleveland Cavalier have offered the open head coaching position to David Blatt. Blatt, 55, has been a longtime coach in Europe, including stints in Russia, Greece, Turkey and most recently Israel.
Blatt is a Princeton grad and coaches with an emphasis on offense. He led Maccabi Tel Aviv to a European championship last year and resigned to follow his dream of coaching in the NBA.
The position has been open since Mike Brown was fired at the end of last season.
