Sources: Cavaliers Reach Out to Marc Jackson
(NEW YORK) -- Marc Jackson may not be in his new job for long. The current ESPN Analyst, who rejoined the network after being fired by Golden State last month, is reportedly being targeted by the Cleveland Cavaliers for their vacancy.
Sources say that Cavaliers general manager David Griffin called Jackson and spoke with him about becoming the team's head coach. No formal interview was set-up and there have been no reports to gauge Jackson's interest in the position.
The team has already interviewed such candidates as Alvin Gentry, Lionel Hollins, Vinny Del Negro, and former Cavalier Mark Price. David Blatt, the former coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv, is reportedly a person of interest as well.
Jackson coached the Golden State Warriors for three season, building up a 121-109 record and helping to lead the team into the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time in 22 years. The Warriors won 51 games in 2013-14 under Jackson's tutelage.
