CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cavaliers have promoted Mike Gansey to director of development league operations.
Gansey served last season as basketball operations assistant, a position he will retain. In his new role, the 29-year-old Gansey will work closely with Cavs vice president David Griffin and Canton Charge (NBA D-League) coach Alex Jensen on personnel matters. Griffin oversees the Charge's operations, and Jensen's role in personnel will expand.
Gansey, who is from Olmsted Falls, played college ball at West Virginia. He led the Mountaineers to the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament. Gansey played professionally overseas in Italy, Germany and Spain, and also played two seasons in the D-League with Anaheim, Idaho and Erie.
Cleveland announced the move on Monday.
