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.

AUDIO Zips Primed For 2017 Football Season

Football season is just around the corner and the Mid-American Conference got things started with their annual Media Day Wednesday at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.
 
If you're wondering about the change in venue, it was moved from Detroit, where there's construction at Ford Field.
 
The Akron Zips are looking to get back to a bowl game, and sixth-year coach Terry Bowden discussed how the quarterback depth heading into 2017 helps his ballclub.
 
"That's why I say competition is the key," Bowden explained. "Tommy Woodson if he's healthy, he'll be hard to beat out, but we've got some good people in a position to compete for that starting position."
 
There's 5 scholarship quarterbacks heading into fall camp including last year's starter Tommy Woodson, who missed some time last year with injury.

 Defensively, linebacker Ulysees Gilbert will be expected to bring leadership on the field this upcoming season for the Zips.

"Ulysees Gilbert is our leader by example, our leader by hard work, and leader by exceptional talent," Bowden said. "He speaks more with his actions than by his mouth."
 
Gilbert was named to the Nagurski watch list and led the team with another 100-plus tackle season in 2016.
 
Coach Bowden says he's confident about his team's chances this upcoming season, for him it comes down to playing hard and staying healthy.

 

Zips running back Warren Ball also discussed his excitement to get things going this football season.  A transfer from Ohio State, Ball said his journey to Akron has been one with challenges, but he relishes his leadership role with the team.

"I just want to make those around me better and help this team win," Ball said.

 The Zips finished 5-7 overall and 3-5 in MAC play in 2016.
