The Cavaliers picked up coach Byron Scott's option for next season, an NBA source said. Scott initially signed a three-year contract with a team option for a fourth season.
Scott is 40-108 in two seasons with the Cavs, but it has long been expected they would pick up the option. It wouldn't be a surprise if he signed an extension. The Cavs have been pleased with Scott's work developing a young roster, while Scott professed his love for the organization over the summer.
"I love where I am. I love the situation I'm in and I've got the right people around me," Scott told the Beacon Journal in July. "Just like any other coach, I want to win now and I want all the pieces to be there. Sometimes patience is the best thing you can do and understanding the whole situation. I understand completely where we are and what we have to do."
