11:09 AM ET 04.21 | The Cavs really like Stan Van Gundy, but he will be courted by several teams. Mike Brown is high on their list, and could get the job. Brian Shaw interviewed here when they hired Byron Scott, and is now an Indiana assistant. They will interview him, but I sense they want someone with head coaching experience. I've heard Flip Saunders, Nate McMillan and Avery Johnson are among several veteran coaches who have either directly or indirectly expressed an interest. There will be more.

Avery Johnson with that voice of his would fit perfectly for the Cavs young roster.
