David Blatt led Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA Finals in his first season and nearly became the first coach to win the EuroLeague title and NBA crown in back-to-back seasons.

Darussafaka Dogus coach David Blatt has accepted the offer of an NBA championship ring by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Blatt led the Cavaliers to a 30-11 record last season before he was strangely sacked to be replaced by Tyronn Lue, who guided Cleveland to their first title in 52 years.

The organisation has recognised Blatt’s contribution.
