LOS ANGELES: David Blatt, who guided Israeli club Maccabi Tel-Aviv to the 2014 Euroleague title, has reportedly been hired to coach the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cleveland Plain Dealer was among several US media outlets reporting Blatt and the team had agreed to a deal on Friday (Saturday in Manila). Blatt had just resigned as the head coach at Maccabi Tel Aviv last week. He spent 33 years as a player and coach in Europe after playing at the college level at Princeton. The 55-year-old Massachusetts native guided Maccabi Tel Aviv to this year’s Euroleague championship. He also led Russia to a bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics.
