The Cleveland Cavaliers could have interest in pursuing Avery Johnson as head coach.

Dan Gilbert has had interest in hiring a college coach for several seasons with offers in the past to Tom Izzo, Bill Self and John Calipari. Johnson is in his fourth season at Alabama and has coached in the NBA previously with the Dallas Mavericks and Brooklyn Nets.

Johnson also coached Collin Sexton at Alabama.

Officials from the Cavaliers spent time with Johnson in advance of drafting Sexton.

Collin Sexton Leaves Alabama For 2018 NBA Draft

Apr 9, 2018 10:29 AM

Collin Sexton has declared for the 2018 NBA Draft.

“Growing up, you always want to make it to the NBA,” Sexton said, “that’s everybody’s goal, to make it to the NBA.”

Sexton is the first player to leave Alabama for the NBA after one season since the 2005 inception of the one-and-done rule.

“Not right now, we’re going through the process on to the final one, but soon,” Sexton said of hiring an agent.

Sexton is expected to be a lottery pick.
