"The Cavaliers are expected to remove the interim label from David Griffin and make him their permanent general manager within the coming days, two sources with knowledge of the proceedings confirmed Saturday night.

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert has remained silent on any changes to the Cavs’ front office and coaching staff since the season concluded. Plenty of names have been linked to the Cavs throughout this front office search, including David Morway, Bryan Colangelo, Donnie Walsh and Joe Dumars, among others. But Griffin has emerged as the choice, and with the NBA predraft camp scheduled for this week in Chicago, the deal could be completed this week." - CLICK HERE to read full story.

"The Cleveland Cavaliers are at a crossroads summer — they need to offer Kyrie Irving a max contract to keep him, they need to decide the fate of coach Mike Brown, they have to decide if they should offer Tristan Thompson an extension, they have to decide how much they would be willing to pay free agents Luol Deng and Spencer Hawes to stay (if they will stay, and if the Cavs want them back).

More importantly, they have to figure out how to put together a roster that can start to win — owner Dan Gilbert has said he is tired of being in the lottery year after year, but with 33 wins last season the Cavs are back again." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
