"We are very pleased to have reached this agreement with Coach Drew to keep the team on the field," said GM Koby Altman in a statement head coach. We look forward to seeing how he can influence the team and help our players grow and succeed. "

According to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the deal includes a partial guarantee for next season. Drew had reportedly reluctantly accepted the coaching position of the team without restructuring his contract.

Drew took over the Cavaliers as interim coach when Tyronn Lue was officially released on October 28.

The Cavaliers are 1-2 as Lue was released at 1-8 during the season.
