The Cleveland Cavaliers have solved at least one of their many problems by signing assistant coach Larry Drew to a new agreement, making him their new head coach for the rest of the season.

Per the report, the deal includes a partial guarantee for next season.

"He brings important experience and many qualities that we expect to translate well with our team as the head coach", said Cavaliers General Manager Koby Altman.

James, obviously, is gone, and the Cavaliers are floundering at 1-8. Drew promised to remain professional and do his job during the talks, and the 60-year-old kept his word.

The Cavaliers had a three-point lead with 18.7 seconds left in the game, possession of the ball and the shot clock turned off, but Cedi Osman's bad pass was intercepted by D.J. Augustin, who was fouled and made both free throws.
