J.B. Bickerstaff fired: 5 Cavaliers head coach candidates

CLEVELAND (BVM) – The Cleveland Cavaliers have fired head coach J.B. Bickerstaff after five seasons with the team.

Bickerstaff took over as interim head coach for the Cavs in 2020 following the departure of John Beilein and went 170-159 overall during his time in Cleveland. After enduring a bit of a rebuild in his first couple of years as the Cavaliers’ head coach, Bickerstaff led the franchise to 99 regular-season wins over the past two seasons and back-to-back playoff appearances, which included the franchise’s first postseason series win without LeBron James since 1993 in 2024.

Despite the recent success, a 4-1 series loss to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference semifinals seemed to spell the end for Bickerstaff. Now, the Cavs will look for a new voice who they hope can take the team deeper into the playoffs in what could be an interesting offseason with the uncertainty surrounding Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland.

Here are five head coach candidates for the Cavaliers.
