Best Candidates to Replace Byron Scott as Cleveland Cavaliers Coach

Byron Scott is out as head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The announcement was made by Cavs general manager Chris Gran, and the search for a new coach will reportedly begin immediately (via NBA.com).

Though Scott's departure doesn't come as much of a surprise, the expected vacancy won't make Cleveland's search any easier.

There are plenty of capable coaches available for hire, but the Cavaliers are tasked with finding one—even if it's a first-timer—that would be willing to work with a rebuilding team.

They also have to think about how that coach would mesh with Kyrie Irving, and whether or not he can be valuable in their anticipated free-agency binge of 2014.

Still, even with the inevitable restrictions that will certainly surface, the Cavs won't be short options. They just need to ensure they select the coach who fits best with their team, and any future plans they currently have.
