The Cavs exercised their team option on Byron Scott, retaining him for the 2013-2014 season. This is great news, even if it is hardly a surprise.

His commitment to this team is really amazing. If you remember, Byron Scott was signed by the Cavaliers as a recruitment tool for Lebron James. He ended up with Ramon Sessions. Yet he persevered, and when the Cavs struck gold in the next draft, he coaxed a great season out of his star young point guard. Here’s to Byron Scott, our coach of the present and future.
