Bickerstaff and the Cavs are coming off a surprising regular season in which they finished with the eighth-best record in the Eastern Conference, despite a rash of key injuries. At times when almost entirely healthy, they were in the top three.

“Bickerstaff will regularly provide insights and analysis on ESPN daytime studio shows, including NBA TodayGet Up and SportsCenter. Bickerstaff makes his debut today, Tuesday, May 3,” the league announced in a statement.

Bickerstaff, 43, has compiled a 71-94 record in a little more than two seasons in Cleveland. That includes a 44-38 mark this year, the Cavs’ best record without LeBron James on the team since the 1997-98 season.
