LeBron James    F  Cavaliers

 

 

LeBron James was "surprised" by the Cavaliers decision to part ways with GM David Griffin according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst. Other reports have also indicated that James is disappointed, especially considering he advocated for a Griffin extension. It's a puzzling move by owner Dan Gilbert to go against James' wishes, and it should be noted that there are several reports that LeBron could move out of Cleveland when he hits free agency in 2018. The Cavs are hoping to bring in Chauncey Billups to replace Griffin, but assistant GM Koby Altman will handle trade calls in the meantime -- the Cavs have been linked to Paul George and Jimmy Butler and are reportedly shopping Kevin Love, Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye.

The Cavaliers will part ways with GM David Griffin according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst. Griffin's contract would've expired on June 30th anyways, but you better believe that LeBron James will have a say when the Cavs select their next GM. The Cavs made it to the Finals in three straight seasons under Griffin and he shouldn't have any trouble landing a new job. Chauncey Billups is a candidate to replace Griffin, but more names should emerge within the week.

The Cavs made it to the Finals in three straight seasons under Griffin and he shouldn't have any trouble landing a new job when one becomes available -- the Magic and Hawks were linked to Griffin before they ultimately went in a different direction.

Channing Frye    F/C  Cavaliers

 

 

The Cavs are reportedly shopping Channing Frye. Frye reportedly helped bring the Cavs locker room together, but his on-court impact with Cleveland during the Finals was minimal. Cleveland likely won't get much of a return for Frye alone, but he could be included as a throw-in piece in a larger deal.

Iman Shumpert    G/F  Cavaliers

 

 

The Cavs are reportedly exploring the trade market for Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye. The Cavs are reportedly currently engaged with teams around the league to bring in either Paul George or Jimmy Butler, but should a trade like that go through, Kevin Love would almost assuredly need to be included. The current rumors going around the league would hint that we could see a blockbuster deal go down on draft night.

David Blatt    C  Cavaliers

 

 

David Blatt will coach in Turkey next season. Blatt will coach Darussafaka Dogus at least one more season. There had been rumors that Blatt would consider returning to the NBA at some point, but he will honor his current contract in Turkey for the 2017-18 campaign.

Richard Jefferson    F  Cavaliers

 

 

Richard Jefferson said on his podcast that he will consider retirement this summer. "I don't know what I'm about to do next season," said Jefferson, who turns 37 next week. He averaged 5.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in 20.4 minutes over 79 games for the Cavs during the regular season, including 13 starts. If RJ does retire, Cleveland would need to target small forwards in free agency, in order to maintain adequate depth behind LeBron James.

LeBron James    F  Cavaliers

 

 

Adrian Wojnarowksi of The Vertical believes that LeBron James could leave the Cavaliers in 2018. "Not only is there no guarantee he’s coming back, I’m not sure there’s an expectation he’s re-signing there," Wojnarowski said. "I think they feel, I think within Cleveland and around the league, they feel that he’s very much in play to leave again and likely head out West to one of the two L.A. teams. The Lakers could very well be a target." Woj mentions the Lakers, Clippers and Heat as potential destinations, and he added that LeBron's title with Cleveland last year means he's "liberated to leave again." LeBron has one year left on his deal with a player option for a second, but the Cavs certainly have a reason to be nervous.

David Griffin    C  Cavaliers

 

 

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert said that he would meet with general manager David Griffin "in the next few days." Griffin's contract is set to expire June 30th. The Magic and Hawks asked for permission to speak with Griffin about vacancies to run their organizations last month but the Cavs denied those requests. Having made less than $2 million last season, Griffin is reportedly seeking a raise. Gilbert declined to say if he was confident Griffin would return. "It's not fair to him for me to discuss that," Gilbert said.

Kyrie Irving    G  Cavaliers

 

 

Kyrie Irving scored 26 points in Monday's Game 5 loss to the Warriors as the Cavaliers were eliminated from the playoffs, Irving got off to a great start tonight, but he cooled off down the stretch and looked like he was battling a couple injuries -- the trainers were working on his back and right quad and he looked a step slow in the second half. He shot 9-of-22 from the field with six assists, two rebounds, two steals and one triple in 42 minutes. Still just 25 years old, Irving has two more years left on his deal with a player option for the third.
