Cavaliers are still in the mix for Pacers forward — Paul George trade

Cavaliers are still in the mix for Pacers forward — Paul George trade”

Rapper and entertainer mogul Ice Cube (and creator/founder of the BIG 3 3-on-3 basketball league) told TMZ on Wednesday that Chauncey Billups has accepted the Cleveland Cavaliers open general manager position.

Griffin had been Cleveland's GM since 2014, taking over the team shortly before James announced he was re-signing with the Cavaliers after playing four seasons in Miami.

The offer that has been extended is reportedly a five-year deal, and comes after Gilbert and Billups spent all day Wednesday together - the second successive full day the two met to discuss the potential of bringing Billups into the Cavaliers organization. He also played for Denver, Minnesota, Boston, the Los Angeles Clippers, Toronto and NY. The Cavs fell short this year, but Griffin did all that he could, adding veterans Kyle Korver and Deron Williams when James said the team needed to get better. A report stated that a number of teams inquired about Kyrie Irving.

Show time is 7 p.m. on ESPN, the league's predominant TV and multimedia partner.

Keeping James happy is arguably Gilbert's No.1 job as the Cavs' owner. So if I were LeBron I'd be thinking pretty seriously about free agency and the Lakers right now - The Land, or at least its owner, is a circus at the moment.

Cleveland's inability to defeat Golden State this season has increased speculation that James will head elsewhere next summer.

Tough times for the three-time defending Eastern Conference champs.

Among the names bandied about are Paul George and Jimmy Butler. If the 26-year-old George had qualified for an All-NBA team, the Pacers could have offered him a five-year super max contract extension worth approximately US$212 million ($AU282 million).
