NBA Props: Will Cavs Fire David Blatt?

After losing in the NBA Finals in six games this spring will the Cleveland Cavaliers make a coaching change for next season? The oddsmakers at online sportsbook Sportsbook have David Blatt favored to keep his job for the 2015/16 campaign.

At Sportsbook Blatt is set as a -200 favorite to be the coach of the Cavaliers for the first game of the 2015/16 season, and as a +150 underdog to no longer be the coach of the team when Sportsbook night rolls around in the fall.

The Cavaliers finished second in the Eastern Conference standings this past season, then rolled through their half of the playoff bracket over the Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, and Atlanta Hawks in 14 games before falling to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.

And Blatt, in his first year as an NBA head coach after getting hired from Maccabi Tel Aviv in Israel last summer, seemed to clash with star player LeBron James on the Cavaliers' bench during the playoffs, leading to speculation that the team would replace their coach.

Sportsbook NBA Special - Will David Blatt be the coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers for game 1 of the 2015-2016 season?
  • Yes -200
  • No +150
