The Cleveland Cavaliers are parting ways with General Manager David Griffin, one of the architects of the Wine and Gold’s 2016 NBA Championship.
In a statement, Owner Dan Gilbert says, “On behalf of the entire organization, I would like to thank Griff for his leadership and many contributions during his time here, including most recently, his role in the franchise’s first NBA Championship.
We have no announcement at this time related to new leadership of the Cavaliers basketball operations group, but we are confident our current front office will continue to aggressively explore and pursue opportunities to improve our team in the weeks ahead.”
Griffin’s contract was due to expire at the end of June. The Cavaliers reportedly denied Griffin permission to speak with Orlando, Milwaukee, and Atlanta about their openings in the front office.
