Larry Drew and Cavaliers have agreed on a deal for rest of season and partial guarantee for next season, league sources tell ESPN. Drew wanted a pay raise to finish out the season and got one.

The team relented to Drew's requests by restructuring his contract and signing him to be their coach for the remainder of this season - and perhaps beyond.

The Cleveland Cavaliers held a 100-95 lead with 30 seconds to play in Orlando, which for most teams would result in a win, but these are the Cavs and even against a not good Magic team, they found a way to give away the game. The Cavs current record is 1-8.

Monday's reported agreement implies that the team has, at a minimum, placed value on buying some stability for the short term while leaving flexibility for a deeper dive into a coaching search if they're not convinced that Drew is the right person for the job. If it's going to take some time, I'd like to be a part of it.

In an open letter to the gymnastics community Monday, USOC CEO Sarah Hirshland said "you deserve better", and that the challenges facing USA Gymnastics are more than it is capable of overcoming as now constructed.

The Cavs have gone 1-2 under Drew, who didn't want to proceed this season without assurances from the organization. Fournier added three steals, including that critical one in the final seconds while the Cavaliers were trying to protect a one-point lead. The team said his timeline to return to basketball activity will be updated in approximately six weeks.

"Obviously we're a different team because of what has transpired within the past 12 months, and then coming into the season, having to lose Kevin Love", he said. The Magic now improve to 4-6 on the season and will play again on Wednesday night when they face the Detroit Pistons.
