NBA Rumors: Joe Dumars not interestedin Cleveland Cavaliers GM job


The Cleveland Cavaliers currently employ David Griffin as their ‘acting’ general manager after the team decided to fire Chris Grant earlier this season.

It’s not known if Griffin will continue on with the franchise once the calendar turns over on the 2014/15 season, but his job security may have just gotten a bit of a boost after former Detroit Pistons general manager Joe Dumars reportedly expressed disinterest in joining the Cleveland Cavaliers front office.

According to Sam Amico, Dumars, who was recently reassigned into an ‘advisor’ role for the Pistons, isn’t interested in the Cavs potential opening.

Meanwhile, Dumars has been retained as an advisor by the Pistons, according to a report in the Detroit Free Press. Despite speculation, Dumars is not interested in a front-office position with the Cavs, sources have said.

Cleveland brings with them a handful of young talents like Kyrie Irving and Anthony Bennett in addition to hefty cap space, but owner Dan Gilbert has a reputation for meddling which many GM’s may not want to involve themselves with.

Ironically enough, the aforementioned Griffin is said to be a candidate for the Detroit Pistons general manager job opening.
