Atlanta is considering a number of candidates, including Griffin, Joe Dumars, Houston vice president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas, and New York Knicks director of player personnel Mark Hughes, sources said. Altanta is also planning to discuss the GM opening with television analysts and former players Chauncey Billups and Brent Barry, league sources told The Vertical. Houston has granted permission to Atlanta to discuss the opening with Rosas, its No. 2 executive behind GM Daryl Morey, league sources said. New York has granted permission on Hughes too, league sources said.
“Here’s the thing that I’m seeing, and again it certainly goes beyond what’s being spewed out with the calculators,” Barry told USA TODAY Sports during a visit on the NBA A to Z podcast. “It’s the fact that there’s something in what the Cleveland team is doing in their body language and in moments in the game — the slight bickering, or the effect that it has on guys with the way that they play. “There’s (defensive) stops that don’t happen, and guys are … getting to the point where they’re slow to get back into an offensive play. They’re absolutely slow on turnovers or when there’s a couple of isolation plays, (and) guys aren’t touching the ball. They’re slow to get back into their defensive plays. There’s just something about the spirit of their competitive drive right now that’s not there.”
