Drew took over head coaching duties after Tyronn Lue was sacked amid the Cavaliers' 0-6 start.
The Cavaliers' preference likely will be to conduct a search and target a coach to direct the franchise's rebuild, but Drew has the trust and respect of the Cavaliers veterans and remains essential to get them through what promises to be a trying season. Drew promised to remain professional and do his job during the talks, and the 60-year-old kept his word.
Because of the team's lack of overall success over the years, Nikola Vucevic has flown under the radar as one of the most effective big men in the Conference. With the Hawks, Drew made the playoffs all three years he was there. Charlotte shot 56 percent from the floor, dominated the Cavs on the boards, 50-27, in the paint, 70-40, and on second-chance scoring, 23-4.
Orlando will be playing the second night of a back-to-back after getting a 117-110 victory in San Antonio on Sunday.
The shooting guard has had trouble knocking down jumpers as of late, but had no trouble hitting the game-winner as Orlando was able to get away with a 102-100 win over Cleveland. He rested the injury, and played in the season's first few games before the pain became intolerable. I can take care of some of that with play calls, but he's got to be more involved, " Magic coach Steve Clifford said before his team improved to 3-6. "I'm the voice right now". He's already posted three 20-plus games, three double-doubles and had the best rebounding game of his career in the season opener against Miami.
