League sources have confirmed to ESPN's Chris Broussard that the Cavaliers have made an official offer to Michigan State coach Tom Izzo. This despite the fact that Izzo told our Andy Katz last week he's not interested in coaching in the NBA until he wins another title with the Spartans. This is not the first time Izzo has been linked to the Cleveland job.
