John Beilein and the Cleveland Cavaliers have discussed the possibility of Beilein stepping down from his coaching role before the end of the All-Star break, league sources told Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

Beilein is expected to reach a decision in the next 24-48 hours.

Shams Charania, Kelsey Russo and Jason Lloyd of The Athletic added that Beilein is not expected to remain head coach beyond this season. 

The 67-year-old Beilein signed a five-year deal with the Cavs last summer.

The losses combined with private and public skirmishes with Cavs players has worn on Beilein, according to sources. Beilein has struggled in connecting with NBA players. 

J.B. Bickerstaff was hired as an associate head coach with an eye towards him eventually taking over the team from Beilein.
