Looks like David Blatt will get his NBA championship ring after all.
In a statement yesterday, the former Cavs head coach said that he would accept the team’s offer for a 2016 championship ring.

Blatt was fired back on Janurary 22nd in only his second season in Cleveland. The Cavaliers were 30-11 at that point which was then the best record in the Eastern Conference.
Blatt’s assistant Tyronn Lue took over and went 43-19 the rest of the way en route to a 4-3 series win over the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals.
