CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – David Griffin doesn’t seem to worried about his future as general manager of the Cavaliers.
Griffin’s contract expires on June 30th and there’s been a lot of buzz and reports about whether or not he will remain with the team after the NBA Finals.
Prior to Game 3 of The Finals at Quicken Loans Arena Wednesday night, a fan yelled to Griffin as he walked towards the court, “Time to get paid” to which he responded, “Don’t believe everything you read.”
Cavs owner Dan Gilbert has been mum about Griffin’s future but he did not grant Orlando permission to speak with Griffin when they were in the process of overhauling their front office last month.
Since taking over for Chris Grant as the Cavs’ general manager in 2014, he’s orchestrated numerous pivotal moves including the selection of Andrew Wiggins with the first pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. Wiggins was dealt by Griffin to Minnesota for Kevin Love after LeBron James agreed to return to Cleveland.
Griffin also acquired through a series of trades J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, Timofey Mozgov and Channing Frye, who were instrumental role players in the Cavs’ 2016 NBA championship run.
