No decision has been reached, according to the report.

Separately, The Athletic reported that Beilein will not be the coach of the Cavaliers past this season.

The Cavaliers sit at 14-40, the second-worst record in the NBA, better than only Golden State.

Beilein, who signed a five-year deal to coach the Cavs, has struggled to adapt to the NBA after a robust career coaching college basketball.

Beilein, 67, racked up 571 wins with four different schools, most recently Michigan. He finished 278-150 in 12 seasons at Michigan before accepting the job with the Cavs.
