LOS ANGELES, June 21 (Xinhua) -- David Blatt, who guided Israeli club Maccabi Tel-Aviv to the 2014 Euroleague title, has been appointed head coach of the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers signed Blatt to a three-year deal with an option for a fourth year that is worth 20 million US dollars.

Blatt spent 33 years as a player and coach in Europe after playing at the college level at Princeton. He resigned as the head coach at Maccabi Tel Aviv last week.

The 55-year-old also led Russia to a bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics.

The Cavaliers had been seeking a replacement for Mike Brown, who was sacked in May.
