David Griffin Rumors
He smiles when he sees Delly hit another three or Thompson chase another rebound. He wishes Irving were healthy. He thinks back to 2010-11, when Cleveland lost 26 games in a row, and the future looked bleak. Four years later, the Cavaliers have completed a historic turnaround, and no shortage of people made it possible. James heads the list, of course, with Griffin close behind. But Grant is on there as well. He kept the cap sheet clean and the war chest full, for the moment the Cavs would need it. “You’re proud it all came together for the team,” Grant said. “But more than anything, you’re happy for the people who are still there.”
The 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers have re-signed guard J.R. Smith, General Manager David Griffin announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. “Bringing J.R. back as part of our core group was a priority for us,” said Griffin. “He’s a special part of this family and we are very pleased to have reached an agreement that we all can feel good about. We know he can’t wait to get back on the court with his brothers and we are certain that everyone in this organization and city feels the same way.”
The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed point guard Toney Douglas to a contract, General Manager David Griffin announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. Per league and team policy, terms of the contract were not released. In a related move, the Cavs have waived forward/center Eric Moreland.
Cavs general manager David Griffin and coach Tyronn Lue were about 30 minutes late getting to the podium for the start of media day Monday. The reason: About 10 minutes before they were supposed to speak, Griffin received a phone call from Raymond Brothers, Mo Williams’ agent. Williams wasn’t going to make it out for training camp after all, Brothers told him. Williams had flip-flopped on his own decision to play for one more season and would in fact retire. “Throughout the summer … it was in debate on what Mo was going to choose to do,” Griffin said. “He vacillated a little bit, and so we were planning on this eventuality throughout.”
