According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Cleveland Cavaliers have fired general manager Chris Grant. There have been rumors for weeks that the Cavs could make a move like this in the front office, but many expected it to be head coach Mike Brown to be the one fired.
After a particularly embarrassing loss last night against a depleted Los Angeles Lakers roster, owner Dan Gilbert made a move. It is unclear what this means for Mike Brown or really anyone on the team, but the Cavaliers have grossly underperformed this year. Anthony Bennett, the #1 overall pick, while playing better recently, has struggled at a historic rate while the pieces that Grant assembled like Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters seem to have trouble playing together.
At this point, the question is whether or not Gilbert is done with this move or if more is coming such as firing Brown or trading players. The Cavs were expected to be a playoff team by Gilbert and the team is not only falling woefully short of that, but are fighting for a spot in the lottery right now. This move raises as many questions as it presents answers.
