The Cleveland Cavaliers joined the increasingly long list of NBA franchises searching for a new head coach this offseason after firing Mike Brown Monday.

Amongst the initial individuals linked to replace Brown is a man who would be able to understand how his peer is feeling right now - former LA Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni.

D'Antoni was fired by the Los Angeles franchise last month after a torrid time with the Lakers but has had his name thrown into the ring by ESPN's Marc Stein today.

According to the NBA expert, the Cavaliers are considering D'Antoni with the 63-year-old having previously worked with David Griffin who was today installed as the new general manager in Cleveland.

Griffin was in Phoenix during D'Antoni's fairly successful coaching spell with the Suns.

It remains to be seen whether the Cavaliers look for a fresh young coach, or whether the experience of the likes of D'Antoni is preferable.

What is for certain is that Mike D'Antoni will be looking to bounce back quickly after seeing his reputation hit with a tumultuous period at the Lakers with reports today suggesting he and Kobe Bryant barely spoke in the final few months of his tenure.
