Chauncey Billups set to meet with Dan Gilbert Tuesday
With no general manager at the moment. and the this year’s NBA Draft only a few days away, the Cleveland Cavaliers are wasting no time in finding a replacement for David Griffin. Despite not owning a pick in the Draft, the team can still snag some players through trades, which could happen as early as Thursday, and makes it very important for them to hire a new GM soon.

During his playing years, the 6-foot-3 point guard has made a name for himself as a clutch performer, earning him the nickname “Mr. Big Shot.” He won a title with the Detroit Pistons back in 2004 and is also a former Finals MVP. His knowledge of the game will definitely benefit the Cavaliers, especially now that they have a lot of big decisions to make this summer.
Should Gilbert see Billups as a good fit with the Wine and Gold, it won’t be surprising if he’ll make him an offer and try to bring him to the organization soon. It may be his first front office position, but with the experience he has, he could turn out to be the piece they’re looking for who can help steer the ship to the right direction once again.
