Cavaliers Contacted Bill Self About Coaching Job

Before selecting former Kansas star Andrew Wiggins with the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft in late June, the Cleveland Cavaliers also had interest in Kansas coach Bill Self.

As part of a lengthy search that included courtships with several college coaches, the Cavaliers contacted Self about the vacancy, Self told The Star on Monday. Self declined to discuss specifics about his conversations with the Cavaliers, and he did not provide a timetable for when they occurred. Cleveland ultimately hired David Blatt on June 20, three weeks before LeBron James announced his return home to Northeast Ohio.

Before being asked about his talks with the Cavs on Monday, Self hadn’t spoken publicly about the opportunity.

“I talked to the Cavs’ people a lot throughout their evaluation process and the draft, but I’ll just leave it at that, Self said. That wasn’t anything I wanted to become public certainly, and they didn’t either.”
