According to several reports, the Cleveland Cavaliers are close to having interim general manager, David Griffin on the staff, permanently.
Griffin joined the Cavaliers on February 6 after the termination of former general manager, Chris Grant who had the position for the past few years. Since joining the Cavaliers, Griffin had gone 17-16 and made things happen with the signing of Luol Deng and Spencer Hawes.
The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Ohio reported on this, but Griffin and Cavaliers owner, Dan Gilbert have been tight lipped about the whole thing by refusing to comment. It was learned that the Cavaliers have interviewed at least four or five candidates for the GM job before finally deciding to settle on Griffin.
Since sources have confirmed that Griffin will be the Cavaliers next GM, one has to wonder if he is interested in keeping or terminating head coach, Mike Brown before the NBA Draft. Whether he does or doesn’t, the team needs change from the front office on down to the players, and Griffin is just the man for the job.
Hopefully, it will be soon when a press conference is held, naming David Griffin as the General Manager of the 33-49 Cleveland Cavaliers.
