The Cleveland Cavaliers and head coach Larry Drew have mutually agreed to part ways according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Portland Trail Blazers assistant coach and former EuroLeague champion as a player of CSKA Moscow David Vanterpool is expected to be among the candidates for the Cavaliers‘ vacant head coach position, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Vanterpool was also an assistant with CSKA from 2007 to 2012 before joining the Blazers‘ coaching staff.

Drew, an assistant with the Cavaliers since 2014, was appointed head coach after Tyronne Lue was fired. He becomes the third NBA coach who’s being fired right after the end of the regular season, following Dave Joerger (Sacramento Kings) and J.B Bickerstaff (Memphis Grizzlies).

UPDATE: The Cavaliers announced that Larry Drew is no longer with the team.
