Koby Altman will finally break his silence after the Cavs season ended.

Koby Altman is finally ready to talk about the season that ended over a week ago. Despite the last regular-season game ending on May 16, Altman has been oddly quiet as rumors of his continued employment play out behind the scenes. The Cavs GM has become known for his wheeling and dealing ways since he took over in LeBron James’ last year with the team. During his time with the Cavs, he’s failed to make the team better.

He lost out on keeping James, gave Kevin Love a huge contract that the power forward never lived up to, traded and acquired multiple first-round picks, some of whom have yet to pay off, and found himself on the verge of paying two above-average players top money to stay with the team.

The salary cap is a wreck, the team has no culture, reports of in-fighting have run amok, and while there is talent on the team, there isn’t any cohesion or ability to play with one another.

Koby Altman may have waited until his fate was clear.

Despite all this, the reason why the GM waited to address fans so long after the last game may have been due to upper management not knowing what direction they want to go with Altman. They may know now, they not, at the end of the day the fans are still left hanging.

The press conference isn’t going to be some huge revolutionary affair, full of gossip and future plans. There’s also no real likely hood the Cavs front office has decided on Altman’s fate as of yet, more than likely they just told him to go ahead and do his presser. It’s also unlikely that Altman shocks the world and resigns at the press conference.

More than likely you’ll get the same stock answer and boilerplate responses that we’re accustomed to. It’s unclear if that makes it better or worse that Altman waited for so long.
