The Cleveland Cavaliers have fired coach Tyronn Lue after a 0-6 start.
The team announced Sunday that Lue was fired and assistant Larry Drew was named interim head coach.
Lue guided the Cavaliers to an NBA title in 2016 — Cleveland's first pro sports championship since 1964 — and helped the team to four straight finals.
But in their first season since superstar LeBron James left as a free agent, the Cavaliers are off to their worst start since losing their first seven games in the 1995-96 season.
General manager Koby Altman says the team felt it “needed a different voice and approach that required this change.”
