Cavs News: Cleveland Will Part Ways With GM David Griffin

The Cleveland Cavaliers will not re-sign general manager David Griffin and part ways with him this offseason, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

Griffin and owner Dan Gilbert had been going through contract negotiations over the past year, but they could not come to terms. Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical reports they had differing opinions over the future of the franchise, and that the Cavs are targeting former NBA player and ESPN analyst Chauncey Billups to replace him.

Billups interviewed for the Atlanta Hawks general manager job last month, but was passed over for Warriors executive Travis Schlenk.

Griffin isn't expected to be on the market for long. He has been with the Cavaliers' front office since 2010, and took over as GM following the 2013-14 season. In the three seasons under Griffin, Cleveland made the NBA Finals every year - including winning the franchise's first championship in 2016.
