Cavs Fire GM, LeBron Rumors, KD Prioritizing Winning


The Cleveland Cavaliers are making headlines this week for some interesting developments. After only 3 seasons, the team decided to part ways with GM David Griffin. Griffin brought the Cavs to three consecutive NBA Finals (and their first Championship in 2016), so the move is widely considered bizarre.

LeBron James tweeted his disappointment in the move saying, “If no one appreciated you Griff I did, and hopefully all the people of Cleveland!” Speaking of LeBron, rumors are flying that the new Clippers’ consultant, Jerry West, will try and lure LeBron to LA when he becomes a free agent next summer.

NBA Finals MVP, Kevin Durant, appears to be prioritizing winning by signaling he’ll opt out of his player option but will re-sign with the team in order to free up money for players like Andre Iguodala, Zaza Pachulia and Shaun Livingston. By giving up the big payday this year, KD is expected to sign a longterm deal after next season. Steph Curry is also a free agent and could sign a 5 year $207 million dollar deal, the largest in NBA history.
