It seems that the Cleveland Cavaliers' list of problems continues to grow: alongside a poor season's start (1-8), Kevin Love's injury, the dismissal of Tyronn Lue, J.R. Smith's request for a trade, adds a new one.

Drew had asked the team to restructure his deal if he was going to take over after Tyronn Lue was sacked.

The Cavaliers are struggling after LeBron James departed as a free agent.

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. At first, he was reluctant to be an interim coach, due to the scrutiny they face, Drew made that clear early on, according to Greg Joyce of the New Yor Post. The Magic were hoping to pickup a consecutive win as they started a 3-game homestand on Monday and it ended seeing an unlikely hero at the buzzer: Evan Fournier. Drew wanted a pay raise to finish out the season and got one.
