Cavs, GM Griffin to part after 3 straight NBA Finals trips


The Cleveland Cavaliers have confirmed that they have made a mutual decision with general manager David Griffin not to extend his contract.

Griffin's contract ends June 20, 2017.

Gilbert continued saying that the Cavaliers did not have an announcement regarding new leadership but said they are still exploring options. The renewal - or non-renwal - of the contract has been the cause of much speculation since the Cavs season ended in a loss to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.

He's also leaving three days before the draft and on the eve of free agency.

Trent Redden, the team's senior vice president of basketball operations, will also leave the organization. James wrote. "Thanks for what u did for the team for 3 yrs!" Griffin has been Cleveland's full-time GM for three years, promoted from vice president of basketball operations in May 2014 after serving on an interim basis for three months when Chris Grant was sacked.

As to whether the JD-U will back his candidature, Nitish Kumar said: "It is hard to say at this point of time". The NDA's Presidential nominee was elected to the Rajya Sabha from Uttar Pradesh in 1994-2000 and 2000-2006.

"We've got a really good friendship".

The Cavs did not formally announce a replacement for Griffin, but The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that a source says Chauncey Billups is expected to emerge as the leading candidate.

Griffin was in control during the team's return to prominence after James came back following four seasons in Miami. James even campaigned to get Griffin an extension after he pulled off a trade to get Kyle Korver, one of the league's best outside shooters.

In the release, Griffin was recognized by Gilbert for his role in helping the Cavs win their first championship in 2015-16.
