A person familiar with the Cleveland Cavaliers' pursuit of Michigan State university head men's basketball coach Tom Izzo says the coach plans to visit Cleveland to discuss the team's coaching vacancy.
Izzo is expected to travel to Cleveland to meet with the Cavs and tour their facilities.
Two people in East Lansing said Izzo was on campus all morning. He is believed to be mulling a massive contract from the club worth up to $6 million per season.
According to ESPN, Izzo held a meeting with his Spartan players yesterday. Sources say that the players left the meeting with the vibe that Izzo would take the Cavs' job if it was offered to him.
Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer says the Cavs are still working more than the one angle with Izzo.Byron Scott seems to be on the radar as well, but Izzo is owner Dan Gilbert's number one.
