Byron Scott believes he was not given a fair chance to turn the Cleveland Cavaliers' situation around.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Mary Schmitt-Boyer got a telephone interview with Byron Scott and quotes the now-former Cavaliers head coach.

I can’t see Phil Jackson coaching the Cavs, but I can see him working within the organization in a Pat Riley style role. The Cavs have reached out to Jackson, to see what interest he has in them.
As they did eight years ago when he was in retirement, the Cleveland Cavaliers have reached out to Phil Jackson about their head coach opening, sources told ESPN.com.
