The Israeli Coach David Blatt is Planned to be the Coach of The Cavaliers

After a month of leading the Maccabi Tel Aviv team to the championship of Euroleague, the Israeli coach, David Blatt is offered a contract of working with the Cleveland Cavaliers for four-year terms. It is, according to a person whose knowledge reaches the part of the negotiations between the team and Blatt.
But this may proven to be a rather controversial decision, seeing that Blatt has no experience handling N.B.A before. He had spent the past twenty years coaching the team in Israel, Turkey, Russia, and Greece. However, he used to be a Princeton’s point guard in between the year of 1977-1981. He has reputation of being an offensive coach, typical of those Princeton-kind of offense which he also learned under Pete Carril, his coach back then.
It is reported that he was actually being considered as an assistant under the new coach, Steve Kerr, by Golden coach. But Cleveland opted to make a sensational move by hiring someone that a little controversial in nature, especially seeing that the said person is easily considered by some people for being ‘out of left field’. The large percentage of International players has opened deeper the global nature of the game, and with the increasingly multicultural players, so do coaches to follow suit, as it seems.
