Cleveland Cavaliers

Reports: Michigan's Beilein agrees to become Cavs' coach

Beilein acknowledged the university in a tweet from his account Monday that read: "Thanks to everyone at the Univ of Michigan for their incredible support these last 12 years.

He quickly climbed the ranks of basketball, winning consistently in Division I stops at Canisius, Richmond and West Virginia.

Star forward Kevin Love underwent foot surgery in November, effectively ending any thought the Cavaliers entertained of competing for a playoff spot.

Those three teams will have a 14 percent chance of picking first, but depending on how things play out, there’s the possibility of falling as far as sixth and missing out on Duke star Zion Williamson, his Blue Devils teammate RJ Barrett or Ja Morant, Murray State’s electrifying guard who already has the Cavaliers’ attention.

Hope seemed lost for the Cavaliers when James bolted last summer, devastating a team — and city — he treated to a title and four straight Finals appearances.

“Would have been easy to kind of fold and whatever, just get steamrolled the last however many games and nobody learned anything, chucked shots and played pick-up basketball, but I don’t think we did that,” Cavs forward Larry Nance Jr. said.
