Former Milwaukee Bucks head coach Larry Drew has joined new Cleveland Cavalier head coach David Blatt’s staff.

Drew was fired after just one season in Milwaukee, finishing a league worst 15-67.

Drew joins a Cleveland team that should be one of the best in the NBA after adding LeBron James and resigned Kyrie Irving.  The Cavaliers will also be adding power forward Kevin Love soon.

The Cavaliers also have another former Bucks assistant on the staff, Jim Boylan.  He was an assistant under Scott Skiles for four-plus seasons before taking over as interim head coach to finish the 2012-13 season.  The Bucks went 22-28 under Boylan over the final 50 games that season.

Prior to joining the Bucks, Drew coached the Atlanta Hawks for three seasons, leading them to the playoffs in all three years.
