Head Coach J.B. Bickerstaff receives multiyear extension from Cleveland Cavaliers

Cleveland announced Saturday that Bickerstaff had signed a multiyear extension. The details of the contract weren’t released.

During his first-year campaign, the Cavs only managed to win 22 games, but as of today, a huge blowout win against the Raptors 99-144 puts them fifth in the Eastern Conference division.

With the outbreak of COVID-19 and eight players on the health protocol, the coach recently compiled a six-game win streak, a huge feat for everyone. Now, Bickerstaff is on his way to live up to the Cav’s organization’s expectations, proving that he can lead them to a playoff spot come postseason.

After John Beilein resigned midway through the 2019 season, Buckerstaff took over as coach. Coming into this season, expectations were low, but after drafting Evan Mobley and veteran guard Rick Rubio, things turned out for the better.

“J.B. Bickerstaff is, with all certainty, the right head coach to lead this franchise into what we believe is a very promising future,” said general manager Koby Altman. “The decision to extend J.B. is not based solely on the early success of this season, but rather a body of work since his arrival to Cleveland.”

The most notable difference with the young Cavs roster would be their improved defensive scheme, all credit due to Bickerstaff, sitting in the league’s third-best defensive rating and second to the Warriors in points allowed.


The Cavs are set to face the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.
