Cavaliers coach Mike Brown reportedly has hired assistant Igor Kokoskov, who spent the past five years with the Phoenix Suns. The Cavs have not confirmed the hire, which was reported by the Arizona Republic and ESPN's Marc Stein.

Kokoskov, a Serbian native who became a U.S. citizen in 2010, has spent 13 years in the NBA, starting with the Los Angeles Clippers and then the Detroit Pistons before joining the Suns. He served as the Suns unofficial offensive coordinator after Lindsay Hunter replaced Alvin Gentry earlier this season.

Kokoskov became the first full-time foreign-born assistant coach in NBA history in 2000. He also is the coach of the Georgian national team featuring Zaza Pachulia.
