Cleveland Cavaliers Part Ways With General Manager David Griffin, Lebron James Not Happy

The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to part ways with general manager David Griffin. Yes, after three-straight trips to the NBA Finals and the franchise’s first championship in 2016, Griffin is out of a job.

Griffin and the Cavs hadn’t come to an agreement on a contract extension and didn’t seem to be on the same page concerning a path forward for the franchise.

LeBron James and much of the NBA world were in shock as the Cavs are in the middle of negotiations to try and land Pacers superstar Paul George. According to several reports, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert did not consult LeBron about firing Griffin and Bron isn’t happy about it.

This is massive news as one of the NBA’s biggest weeks is just getting under way, and probably not a smart move on Gilbert’s part considering the rumors about LeBron leaving for the Clippers after next season are heating up.

Griffin should be highly sought-after by other teams. He is clearly a competent executive who did really solid work with the Cavs.
