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?
