The Cleveland Cavaliers could move on from John Beilein, possibly before their next game.
John Beilein may not be long for the Cleveland Cavaliers. At least that is what is being said about the situation. According to reports, the Cavs and Beilein have discussed parting ways during the All-Star Break.
This report is also known as right this moment. Cleveland moving on from yet another coach does absolutely nothing in regards to stability within the organization. Although things have not been great under John Beilein, the team still struggles in regards to turnovers, transition defense, and movement on offense. Is all of this on Beilein? No. However some improvement in those areas would be ideal and improvement appears to be very minimal, if at all.
Perhaps part of the hire was to part ways with some of their older veterans and treat this as a rebuilding year. This could have allowed John Beilein to help with the development of their younger guys such as Collin Sexton, Darius Garland, and Kevin Porter Jr. Beilein was brought in to help the transition from college to the NBA for these players. Sexton is in his second season, but his rookie year was quite a tumultuous one.
Instead, Cleveland added talent to an already flawed roster. The Cavaliers clearly believe that they are closer to competing than they actually are. To be blunt, this team is not good regardless of who the head coach is.
It is easy to wonder if Cleveland moves on from Beilein the ripple effect it has on the players on the roster. Some of the older veterans have notably clashed with the former Michigan coach and could welcome a change. Others such as Andre Drummond and Kevin Love could see this as a reason to leave in free agency or request a trade. It’s never a dull moment when it comes to Cleveland sports and this is just the beginning.
