Former assistant coach sues Cavaliers, Dan Gilbert, Koby Altman


Cavaliers interim coach Larry Drew says he’s making progress in contract negotiations with the team.

But now the Cavs are facing yet another coaching saga.

Former Cleveland assistant coach Jim Boylan, 63, is suing Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, general manager Koby Altman and the team itself for age discrimination.

Among Boylan’s claims:

Gilbert and Altman deserve a chance to respond to these allegations. They might reveal different reasons for firing Boylan.

But it’s possible to see a first-time general manager like Altman – who replaced the more experienced David Griffin after Gilbert let Griffin’s contract expire – erring in the handling of this dismissal.

That’s funny. It probably never occurred to these guys that you shouldn’t say something like that. I bet it’s a blind spot for people in the sports industry.

Jim Boylan probably just blackballed himself for any future jobs.

Wonder if Lue got fired for this. They were probably aware of this before Jim Boylan filed the lawsuit.

Now that you mention it that might be why.. I mean why else would Lue be fired if he can ensure a top draft pick with how bad the Cavs are playing.
