CLEVELAND - First-year Cavaliers coach David Blatt has hired former Milwaukee coach Larry Drew as one of his assistants.

Blatt will have Drew, Jim Boylan, Bret Brielmaier and James Posey on the bench with him along with Tyronn Lue, named an associate head coach in June.

Drew went 15-67 in his only season in Milwaukee. He was expected to get a second year but was fired so the Bucks could hire Jason Kidd. A former NBA player, Drew also coached Atlanta.

A long-time NBA assistant, Boylan is back for his second season with Cleveland as is Brielmaier.

Posey spent last season coaching Cleveland's Development League affiliate in Canton. He won league titles as a player with Miami and Boston.

Also, Phil Handy will also serve as the team's director of player development and Vitaly Potapenko has been retained as assistant director of player development.
