CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - All eyes on the man who could lead the Cleveland Cavaliers next season - Tom Izzo.

Rumors are flying that the team's top coaching contender will be in Cleveland today to get a tour of Cavs country.

Despite a reported $30M offer on the table, Izzo's final decision hinders on LeBron James. The NBA superstar up for free agency in a few short weeks.

Izzo has been wooed by other NBA teams in the past, but never seriously considered making the jump to the pros until, perhaps, now.

19 Action News learned that on Wednesday, two other names were linked to the top coaching position.  Former Nets and Hornets coach Byron Scott and former Knicks and Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy.
