The Cleveland Cavaliers will likely promote J.B. Bickerstaff to interim head coach if they part ways with John Beilein before the end of the season.
Bickerstaff is currently associate head coach.
Bickerstaff would also be a strong candidate to become the next permanent head coach of the Cavaliers.
Bickerstaff has previously been an interim head coach with the Houston Rockets and the Memphis Grizzlies. Bickerstaff was permanent head coach of the Grizzlies for the 18-19 season and was fired last April.
Bickerstaff’s father, Bernie Bickerstaff, is a member of the Cavaliers’ organization.
