Cavaliers File Suit Against Fratello: The Cleveland Plain-Dealer, via the Sports Business Daily, is reporting that the Cleveland Cavaliers have filed a lawsuit against former coach and TNT analyst Mike Fratello, claiming they should not have to pay him the full $3 million in deferred compensation owed for the 1999-2000 season. The team contends that "because he pursued other opportunities" and did not "devote full-time effort and attention, solely and exclusively, to his Cavaliers' coaching duties," they do not have to pay him the full amount of deferred compensation.
