The Cavaliers' offeseason has been anything but dull, and new General Manager Koby Altman addressed some of the pressing matters in Cleveland inlcuding Kyrie Irving's trade demands.

Altman was formally introduced at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon at Cleveland Clinic Courts. He has been with the Cleveland Cavaliers front office for the past five years, most recently as the Assistant GM.

Cavaliers' majority owner Dan Gilbert said he feels very confident in Koby's ability to take over in his new role.

"Koby's a special guy," Gilbert explained. "He knows basketball and he's a relationship guy, he's both book smart and street smart."

Altman takes over for the departed David Griffin, who served as the GM in Cleveland since the 2014-15 season.

Koby says despite reports of unrest within the organization, between players, etc,  things are fine in Cleveland. 

"This thing is not broken, we are a very successful organization, and we're going to continue to drive for that success," he said.
