    Default So the Cleveland GM got axed

    I don't think i need to remind everyone how their last few first round picks have been head scratchers and thus i'm guessing whoever comes in might want to ship some of them out, especially Waiters and Bennett.

    Time for the warlord MU to pilfer

    Would not be surprised. The way the raps are playing only helps his case. Since his responsible for the whole starting line up.

    we need to be asking about Jarrett Jack. Fields and protected 1st rounder gets that done for me. Saves them 12 million

    Chris Grant's problem was never that he was a bad trader - he was honestly a trade ninja when it comes to the "get more than you give" theory of trading - but that he was problematic as a drafter and terrible at assembling a coherent roster. Profitable trades with Cleveland are more likely now, not less.

    That having been said, Cleveland is apparently elevating the assistant GM to the top chair for now and that guy has a solid rep for being good at all management aspects, so who knows.

    the thing is Cleveland should have a starting lineup of Kyrie Irving, Victor Oladipo, Harrison Barnes, Jonas Valanciunas...and thats not just hindsight talking...these guys were rated better by most of the media and scouts alike. aside from a PF how is this not a core to build around for ten years to come? Cavs gloriously shit the bed with picks 29 other teams would have salivated over

    If you dont see how Fields and a mid to late first rounder isn't worth Jarrett Jack we can't be friends anymore

    Hold on to your pants folks. Before we get excited, out very own might get poached:

    The Cleveland Cavaliers fired Chris Grant on Thursday and elevated David Griffin to interim general manager.

    Sources say the Cavaliers have done background checking on Mark Hughes, who is currently director of pro personnel of Mark Hughes.

    Jeff Weltman, who is currently with the Toronto Raptors, is also expected to receive interest.

    Gary Sacks is also an under-the-radar possibility. Sacks is currently general manager of the Los Angeles Clippers, but Doc Rivers has final say on personnel moves.

    Chris Wallace, Glen Grunwald and Jeff Bower are also available candidates with previous GM experience.

    Weltman might be doing this right now:

    Now that Grant is gone and that Cleveland wants to shake up their roster, Kyrie may be the next one to go.

    Not surprised Weltman is getting looks though.

    Yup, BC had his flaws, but outside of the Bargs pick the rest of his draft picks were solid....come to think of it, wasn't MU on the Raptors staff as an talent scout for all of those picks? How much of the current roster did MU have a hand in I wonder?

    Then he's perfect for Cleveland, since they love drafting mid-draft-pick type players (with top 5 picks).
