Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman fired coach Tyronn Lue on Sunday and replaced him with top assistant Larry Drew on an interim basis.

Lue, 41, is the only coach in Cavs history to win a championship. He has three years left on the five-year, $35 million contract he signed after guiding the team to its 2016 Finals victory, and leaves the only head coaching job he’s ever had with a record of 128-83.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania and I first reported Lue’s firing Sunday morning on Twitter. Damon Jones, one of Lue’s assistants, was also dismissed. The team announced the moves Sunday afternoon in a news release.
