Cavaliers Fire GM Chris Grant, Name David Griffin Acting GM
The Cavaliers have fired GM Chris Grant after Owner Dan Gilbert "had grown increasingly frustrated with the losing and dysfunction" within the franchise. Gilbert "had delivered a mandate of making the playoffs" this season, and the team's current record is 16-33. Grant "had a reputation as a hard-working executive, but failed to construct an infrastructure of talent to return the Cavaliers to the playoffs for the first time since LeBron James left as a free agent" in '10 (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 2/6). The team named VP/Basketball Operations David Griffin Acting GM (Cavaliers).
