BREAKING: Cleveland Cavaliers have hired new coach

The Cleveland Cavaliers continue their overhaul of the coaching staff by reportedly adding Trevor Hendry, according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype. Hendry is a former assistant coach with the Brooklyn Nets.

Hendry has worked closely in player development, spending time in the G-League and coaching the Nets during the 2023 Las Vegas Summer League. He previously served three seasons as a video coordinator under head coach Kenny Atkinson during their time in Brooklyn.

With this addition, the Cavs have now brought in four new assistant coaches since parting ways with J.B. Bickerstaff. Hendry joins Johnnie Bryant, Jordan Ott, and DeMarre Carroll, all of whom have earned praise for their skills in player development.

Koby Altman and the Cavs front office are putting their faith in the internal growth of the roster. With limited options for significant improvements this summer, homegrown development is paramount. It is no surprise to see Atkinson assembling a staff of coaches who can help unlock the potential that remains within the team.

Assuming the Cavs’ front office remains committed to the core four, maximizing the potential of their two youngest stars, Evan Mobley and Darius Garland, will be crucial for the success of this coaching staff. Their development will be pivotal in determining the team’s overall performance and future achievements.
