The Cleveland Cavaliers are hiring Golden State Warriors assistant Kenny Atkinson as the franchise’s next coach, sources told ESPN on Monday.

The sides have started work on a contract, and a deal is expected to be reached soon, sources said.

The Cavaliers’ process had been pared down to Atkinson and New Orleans Pelicans associate head coach James Borrego, sources said. Borrego, who worked the past season with new Detroit president Trajan Langdon in New Orleans, is now expected to become a prominent candidate in the Pistons’ coaching search, sources told ESPN.
