After the Cavaliers close the regular season tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats, dramatic changes are coming to the organization. The most burning question pertains to the future of coach Byron Scott and whether this will be his last game on the bench.

Scott has one more year on his contract and no one within the organization has publicly or privately declared this to be his final game, but all indications are privately pointing to Scott being fired Thursday.

Either way, one high-ranking official said the decision will be made quickly. When he meets with reporters Thursday for his end-of-season news conference, General Manager Chris Grant is expected to either definitively declare Scott the coach for next season or he will have already been fired.

Scott was adamant after the loss Monday to the Miami Heat that he expects to return next season as coach.

“I am going to be back to coach them next year,” Scott said.

He hasn’t been told that by anyone in the organization, but “I’ve got a year left on my contract, that’s how I figure it, unless I’m told differently. That’s how I approach it.”

It has been a turbulent finish to his third season in charge, from players privately questioning his practice habits and in-game strategies to the peculiar behavior of his star player.

Kyrie Irving apologized through his Twitter account Tuesday after he snubbed fans during the Fan Appreciation ceremony after the game Monday. All players were expected to remain on the court to give selected fans their game-worn jerseys and shoes, but Irving sprinted off the floor and into the locker room after he was stripped by the Heat’s Norris Cole on the game’s final play.

“I want to personally apologize to all the Cavs fans for my actions yesterday,” Irving wrote Tuesday. “It was truly unfair to you guys. I’m very appreciative for all of you guys. Your love and passion for the organization and city is what pushes me to be great.”
