Larry Drew disappointed that Cleveland Cavaliers haven't restructured contract | Updated: 2018-10-31 08:00:22

CLEVELAND -- Cavaliers assistant coach Larry Drew on Tuesday said he's "very disappointed" that the team has not restructured his contract.

Drew has been asked to fill in as head coach on an interim basis after the team fired Tyronn Lue on Sunday following its 0-6 start. Drew has asked for guarantees if he's going to take over the rebuilding team, but as of Tuesday evening, the Cavaliers had not given him any.

"There are no updates, which I'm very disappointed about," the 60-year-old Drew said before the Cavaliers' game against Atlanta on Tuesday night.

Drew said he assured the Cavaliers he would remain professional during the negotiations and also promised he wouldn't quit. He also said the Cavaliers told him it's possible they'll bring in a full-time replacement for Lue.

If that happens, he would slide back to his assistant's role.

The team has been a disappointment so far this season, its first since LeBron James left for the second time as a free agent.

The Cavs are struggling to adjust following the departure of three-time champion James to the Los Angeles Lakers this summer.
