The Milwaukee Bucks have interest in Cavaliers general manager David Griffin, whose current contract expires at season’s end and who is in discussions with Cleveland on continuing there. Multiple sources told cleveland.com that the Bucks, who lost general manager John Hammond to the Orlando Magic this week, have interest in Griffin, 47.
“You can’t,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said, when asked if he’s begun to think about the probable Finals matchup with the Warriors. “As much as you want to, it’s not over. This team (the Celtics) is, like I told you guys before, it’s like we’re preparing for a whole new team.
Tyronn Lue: “Like, we didn’t know what they were going to run. Isaiah (Thomas) goes down and they’re running a totally different offense than we prepared for so it’s been tough on us. And defensively, they’re a lot better. They don’t have a lot of weak links to go to, to go at.”
Garrett Temple has participated in programs that the National Basketball Players Association puts on that allows players to learn the different facets of broadcasting, coaching and what it takes to be in a front office. “I’ve done all three of those. All three of them have caught my attention, but the coaching and the front office are really something I think I may be interested in,” said Temple, who signed a three-year deal with the Kings last summer.
Garrett Temple: “I have a lot of relationships around the league because I’ve been on so many teams so hopefully I’ve left great impressions on the front office people and the people in positions to make decisions. When I finish, if that’s something I want to get into, hopefully I’ll have networked enough to reach out and try to get a couple of offers.”
