NBA News: Cavs Reach Out To Mark Jackson About Head Coaching Position

Only two head coaching vacancies remain in the NBA after Derek Fisher signed with the New York Knicks earlier this week.

With the Los Angeles Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers being the last two teams searching for a head coach, Mark Jackson is an option for both. Although the Lakers have been rumored to have narrowed their coaching search to three options, Jackson may still be on their radar.

In the meantime, the Cavs appear to be considering Jackson as candidate, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN The Magazine:

The Cleveland Cavaliers have reached out to Mark Jackson about their head-coaching job, according to sources with knowledge of the team’s thinking.

It could be argued that the Cavs’ coaching vacancy is the more appealing job at this point in time. Cleveland has a talented young roster with All-Star Kyrie Irving leading the way.

Along with Irving potentially signing a max contract in the near future, the Cavs have the top pick in the upcoming 2014 NBA Draft. Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid and Jabari Parker will all be in play with the number one pick for the Cavs and all seem like solid options with promising NBA futures ahead.

Although Cleveland might have the better chance to build a solid foundation quicker than the Lakers, Los Angeles is always an appealing location for head coaches of Jackson’s caliber.

As of right now, Byron Scott appears to be the favorite to land the Lakers job while Los Angeles Clippers assistant Tyronn Lue may have the edge in Cleveland. Jackson definitely makes the coaching search interesting for the Cavs being the biggest name linked to the vacant position.

Other notable mentioned as candidates for Cleveland are Vinny Del Negro, Alvin Gentry, Lionel Hollins, Adrian Griffin and Cavs legend Mark Price.
