Cleveland Cavaliers make changes to coaching, player development staff

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Plenty is changing for the Cleveland Cavaliers this season, including some of the coaching, player development and operations staff.

Needing to replace Director of Player Development Phil Handy, who left to join the Toronto Raptors this summer, the Cavaliers moved Mike Gerrity into that role.

Gerrity, who spent the last two years as Director of Player Development for the Canton Charge and a Player Development Assistant with the Cavaliers, is a former college point guard who will work closely with eighth-overall pick Collin Sexton.

Dan Geriot, who was previously an Assistant Video Coordinator/Coaching Assistant with the Cavs from 2016-18 and a Seasonal Video Coordinator during the team's 2015-16 championship season, has been promoted to Assistant Coach/Player Development.
