CHICAGO — It wasn’t just about the wedding.
Cavaliers Assistant General Manager Mike Gansey acknowledged that General Manager Koby Altman met new coach John Beilein at Gansey’s August 2014 wedding. That was also the case for then-GM David Griffin and then-senior vice president of basketball operations Trent Redden.
(It also was a month after LeBron James returned to the Cavs and Gansey’s groomsmen, who included Beilein’s son Patrick, did James’ trademark powder toss when Gansey appeared at the altar.)

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Much like they did with their recent coaching search, the Cleveland Cavaliers are expected to cast a wide net when it comes to the fifth overall pick and will consider Kevin Porter Jr. and Bol Bol at that spot, league sources told cleveland.com.
The other names in contention at No. 5 are more obvious, led by Vanderbilt’s Darius Garland, Virginia’s De’Andre Hunter, Texas Tech’s Jarrett Culver and Duke’s Cameron Reddish. But Bol and Porter, a pair of prospects with red flags, also have top 10 talent, making them intriguing options for a group that is known to take risks.
According to sources, the Cavs met with Porter Wednesday night in Chicago. They are hoping to bring him to Cleveland for a pre-draft workout in the next few weeks.
After the combine, the Cavs will head to Agency Pro Days, where different reps put their clients on display for executives. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
