Sources confirmed to ESPN.com on Thursday that David Blatt, a longtime European coach has been offered the Cleveland Cavaliers head coaching job.
quote:Blatt is know from running the Princeton offense. If hired, he will be the third head coach for Cleveland in three years.
Blatt met with Cavs officials and team owner Dan Gilbert over the past two days and was offered the job on Thursday night. Los Angeles Clippers assistant coach Tyronn Lue was the other finalist for the job, sources said, after a protracted search to replace Mike Brown that lasted six weeks and included numerous candidates.
Blatt, 55, will be coming to the NBA after a long and successful 20-year coaching career in Europe that included stops in Israel, Greece, Russia and Turkey. He led Maccabi Tel Aviv to the Euroleague championship this season. In 2012, he coached the Russian national team to the bronze medal at the London Olympics.
