Report: Chauncey Billups emerges as frontrunner for Cavs GM job

LeBron David Griffin Contract

In a shocking turn of events, the Cleveland Cavaliers have decided to part ways with the only general manager to successfully bring a professional sports title to the city of Cleveland in over 50 years. The architect of the Cavs 2016 championship team and the team have agreed to part ways, according to Brian Windhorst.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the emerging candidate for the Cavaliers President of Basketball Operations gig is a former Detroit Pistons guard and 2004 NBA Finals MVP Chauncey Billups.

Billups has reportedly had an ongoing relationship with owner Dan Gilbert as well as head coach Tyronn Lue — a good starting step when it comes to familiarity with the team and roster as the team will be forced to make delicate, but fast decisions this offseason — having the most inflated salary cap in The Association. Billups averaged 15.2 points, 2.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.8 three-pointers per game in his 17-year career.

Despite having no prior front office experience, the Cavs seem to think Billups would be a good fit for the job.
