The Cleveland Cavaliers have fired David Blatt as head coach.

Blatt was hired before the 2014 offseason when the Cavaliers subsequently signed LeBron James and traded for Kevin Love.

The Cavaliers currently have the best record in the Eastern Conference and reached the 2015 NBA Finals.

Tyronn Lue has been promoted to head coach on a three-year deal worth at least $9.5 million.
