The Clippers and Byron Scott initiated talks about financial parameters of a contract Friday night.
The Clippers have yet to take that step with Lionel Hollins and Brian Shaw, so this report suggests that Scott is surprisingly ahead of the other two. Of course, the Clippers and Celtics trade talk isn't going away and the Clippers are believed to be waiting on a definitive answer on Doc Rivers. Sat, Jun 22, 2013 05:05:00 PM

Byron Scott's second interview with the Clippers and owner Donald Sterling went very well, sources with knowledge of the meeting told ESPN's Chris Broussard.

That was the same report ESPN gave on Scott's first chat with the Clippers, although the Sterling factor amplifies the importance of this meeting. The Clippers and Sterling were meeting with one of the other finalists, Brian Shaw, on Wednesday and sources told Broussard that Sterling could decide on the team's next coach as early as Friday or he could take the weekend to think it over. Of course, this was all before Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Clippers re-engaged the Celtics in Doc Rivers-related trade talks late Wednesday afternoon, which throws a massive monkey wrench into everything once again. Stay tuned.

Byron Scott will sit down with the Clippers again on Tuesday, sources told ESPN.

Scott met with the team on June 12 and his interview went "very well," and now he'll get a second sit down, this time with Clippers owner Donald Sterling. With the Clippers' pursuit of Doc Rivers still up in the air, the team will put pressure on Boston by moving forward with other potential candidates.

Byron Scott's interview with the Clippers on Tuesday "went very well," an executive told the Los Angeles Times.

That's a pretty banal statement and the same sentiment was passed along when Brian Shaw interviewed, so we're not reading into this very much at all. The Clippers have interviewed Shaw and Scott, and will now talk to Lionel Hollins and Nate McMillan regarding their open head coaching job. Donald Sterling will make the final decision.

The Clippers are reportedly choosing between Byron Scott and Brian Shaw to be their next head coach, according to Peter Vecsey.

Vecsey is sometimes informed, and sometimes a rumor monger, but we're inclined to believe this particular report. Donald Sterling is known to be a fan of Scott's, while Shaw has been on the Clippers' radar since initially firing Vinny Del Negro. We'd be surprised if the team hired Lionel Hollins or Nate McMillan ahead of either Shaw or Scott.

Bryon Scott will interview with the Clippers on Tuesday.

Scott has a connection with Chris Paul, but other than that it's hard to say who might be in the lead as the Clippers interview a handful of candidates this week. Brian Shaw, Lionel Hollins and Nate McMillan are also scheduled to be seen this week.

The Clippers have contacted Byron Scott about their head coach job, sources tell ESPN's Chris Broussard.

Broussard's sources described the talks as "preliminary" because the team's front office is putting together a list of candidates to present to owner Donald Sterling. Jeff Van Gundy, Nate McMillan, Brian Shaw and Lionel Hollins are reportedly among the names on the early list. Warriors assistant Mike Malone has also been connected to the Clippers, but the Kings are reportedly very interested in Malone, as well. Both Malone and Scott have a close relationship with Chris Paul, who is likely involved in the decision-making process despite being slated for unrestricted free agency this summer.

The Clippers have both Byron Scott and Mike Malone on their list of candidates for head coach, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard.

Both Scott and Malone are known to have a close relationship with the franchise's star Chris Paul, so it's not a shock to see either name on the list. Scott was let go by the Cavs after the season while Malone has been an assistant with Mark Jackson on the Warriors bench and is gaining steam as a head coaching candidate for a few teams.

Byron Scott told the Cleveland Plain Dealer he didn't think he got a fair shake from the Cavs.

Scott was fired Thursday after years as Cleveland's head coach. He finished with a record of 64-166 but was saddled with a rebuilding team recovering from losing LeBron James to the Heat. Scott also had to deal with multiple injuries to key players, especially this season with Anderson Varejao missing most of the season and Kyrie Irving suffering multiple injuries.

The Cavaliers officially confirmed that Byron Scott has been fired as head coach.

Cavs general manager Chris Grant said the team will look for an experienced head coach with a defensive background, which sounds an awful lot like former Cavs coach Mike Brown. Grant was non-committal when asked about Brown, but it's clear the Cavs are looking for someone to take their young core and turn it into a contender.

Updating a previous item, Byron Scott has been fired as Cavs head coach, source told the Akron Beacon-Journal.

The writing was on the wall. Once the news is confirmed, Scott will officially end his tenure in Cleveland with a record of 64-166 over three seasons. You can bet the Cavs will be sure that whoever the next head coach is has Kyrie Irving's stamp of approval.

Byron Scott's future with the Cavs is expected to be determined on Thursday.

Scott, according to multiple reports, will be let go and relieved of his duties as head coach of the Cavs. When asked to summarize his tenure in Cleveland, Scott would say only that it was "frustrating, more than anything." It would be a surprise to see him return.

The Cavs are expected to fire Byron Scott at the end of the season, sources told Fox Sports Ohio.

Scott's future has been a topic of discussion since the beginning of April, and while he's dismissed concerns about his job security, it's hard to overlook the reports at this point since several are pointing toward the idea that he'll be shown the door. It wouldn't be surprising to see Scott shown the door.

Byron Scott's future with the Cavs is "in question," according to the Akron Beacon-Journal.

One anonymous Cavs player told the paper that the team is "exhausted" at this point, and went as far as to say Scott "killed us in camp." "Out shootarounds are an hour and 45 minutes." One player defended Scott saying that his teammates should "shut up and play," but there are questions about Scott in the front office and this won't be the last time we hear a rumble like this.
