Cleveland Cavaliers, GM David Griffin part ways

Cleveland Cavaliers, GM David Griffin part ways

Owner Dan Gilbert released a statement saying that the two sides "mutually chose to not extend David's current contract".

Griffin has served in the role for three years.

Griffin's three-year run as general manager with Cleveland is over after one championship and three straight trips to the NBA Finals.

James isn't shy about expressing his feelings and he eloquently ripped Gilbert and offered his appreciation for Griffin in a tweet Monday night after the "mutual" parting with the 47-year old executive that constructed the 2016 National Basketball Association championship and three-time conference championship team.

One disturbance is in the Atlantic Basin, about 1,300 miles east-southeast of the southern portion of the Windward Islands. This is a classic rainmaker tropical system, with a large area of rain surrounding a poorly organized low pressure center .

Fresh off their NBA Finals loss to the Warriors in five games, the Cavaliers already had begun searching for answers to Golden State's depth of starpower - with Griffin leading the charge.

One has to wonder if Griffin and Gilbert disagreed on the major transaction the Cavs need to make this offseason to catch up to the Warriors.

In moves to support a roster suddenly sparked by James, Griffin traded Wiggins to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a deal for Love and in January 2015 obtained J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert from the New York Knicks.

Griffin said in a statement that Cavs is a team built largely on fit, but at this point, the fit is no longer right for them to continue together. Assistant general manager Koby Altman remains with the team and is part of a group overseeing draft preparation and trade talks. Multiple sites also reported that the Cavs were contacted by the Indiana Pacers about a possible deal for four-time All-Star Paul George.

His boxing licence was granted by the California State Athletic Commission in December, allowing him to box in the USA state. Going into the fight, Mayweather, who's been retired since September 15, is the favorite with an undefeated record of 49-0.

Ever since he returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the summer of 2014, James has had his fingerprints over the majority of the moves the franchise has made. The GM said: "I think at the point we're at now, it's what makes you 5-10-15 percent better?" James wrote. "Thanks for what u did for the team for 3 yrs! We got us 1". Gilbert was upset Griffin would consider jobs elsewhere, and when the Magic and Hawks asked permission to speak with the GM, the Cavs owner denied it.

Gilbert has owned the team for 12 1/2 years.

Griffin's contract with the Cavs is set to expire next month.

Griffin's departure was announced just hours after numerous reports surfaced that IN had contacted the Cavs about a possible trade for small forward Paul George, who will be an unrestricted free agent following the 2017-18 season and has reportedly told the Pacers he will not re-sign with them.
