After a lackluster performance last night, and this season, the Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly fired Chris Grant.

Many Cavalier faithful have expected this move, but some thought he would be given a chance to make trades at the deadline to save his job. The team’s additions of Andrew Bynum, Jarrett Jack and Earl Clark in free agency have tanked. The drafting of Anthony Bennett and Sergey Karasev have done little to nothing for this year’s roster. Even the trade for Luol Deng could do nothing to stem the tide of this horrible season.

Assistant GM David Griffin will most likely take over the front office for now. Don’t be surprised if the Cavaliers are linked to a number of big name ex coaches such as Phil Jackson and George Karl, even if the they aren’t likely to come in. Expect owner Dan Gilbert to turn over every stone to get the franchise on the right track. This could have a huge impact on the up coming trade deadline. Could it impact coach Mike Brown, who many think should be fired during his disastrous return season to Cleveland?

What do you think of this move? Who should the Cavs bring in next? Does it matter if Brown is still the coach? Should anything that Grant has built still stand?

    Great move, but just the start I hope! Mike Brown should be next to go ! Would love to see George Karl as coach! Come on Dan Gilbert, give Mr. Karl whatever it takes and clean house if you have to, but straighten this mess out!!

      Doesn’t look like Brown is getting the ax. Looks like Gilbert has confidence in him. We shall see. Will there be any big changes from Brown tonight?

      • Letterman007

        Yes, they won!! But lets see how long it lasts? They won 3 of 5 when the Deng move happened and then lost a bunch afterward! I think Brown has until the end of the season to right the ship or he’s GONE!!!

        • Jared Mueller

          If they fall apart I agree with you. Gilbert is pretty bought in to him right now.

          • Letterman007

            Well two in a row, but don’t puff out your chest yet!! They haven’t made the playoffs, or really done anything to make me see them in a different light! Give it a while longer, I still don’t see much defensive improvement!! Mike Brown has had three fourths of a year to preach and little to no defense do I see!!

          • Jared Mueller

            No puffing chest out, just yet… They are far from being able to even celebrate getting a sniff of the playoffs. I expect a big move or a couple smaller moves to build the team for now and the long run.

          • Letterman007

            If they could get a true center that can rim guard and score a little, it would be nice, but you finally got the forward you’ve been missing for three years, lets not be in a hurry to get rid of him yet!! I can see maybe Dion and Earl Clark or Jack leaving, but don’t get carried away!!
