AUDIO: John Michael On Cavs GM Search

Exactly one year after the Cleveland Cavaliers hoisted up the Larry O’Brien trophy, the Cleveland Cavaliers are on the lookout for a new general manager. David Griffin, the now-former GM of the Cavs, has parted ways with the organization, eleven days before his contract was to expire.

What is next? Who is next? Why did this happen? John Michael, the radio voice of the Cavs, answered some of those questions on the Ray Horner Morning Show. Michael admitted the timing of this parting of ways was a bit puzzling, since the NBA Draft and free agency are right around the corner. As far as a replacement, Michael believes a new GM could be named “sooner rather than later.”

Back to Griffin, Michael felt the former Cavs executive was a “player’s GM” who stressed team chemistry. Griffin helped transform the team in just three short years through the acquisitions of JR Smith, Iman Shumpert, Timofey Mozgov, and others. Michael also thought Griffin did a good job based on the little flexibility the team had.

The 2016 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers will start here very soon, and as defending NBA Champions, the expectations for this team have not changed.

Cavaliers GM David Griffin and head coach Ty Lue adressed the media at Cleveland Clinic Courts Monday and talked about the team moving forward into 2016-17.

Lue said that health was the biggest thing for his team this year.

"It gives us a great boost going into this season, and it's good to have everyone in good health."

Also some news from Media Day this morning is that veteran point guard Mo Williams will be retiring from the NBA. 

 Griffin says he likes where the team sits as far as backup point guard, and with rookie Kay Felder and some of the other players, he feels they're in good shape.
