Pelicans reportedly name David Griffin VP of Basketball Operations

Pelicans reportedly name David Griffin VP of Basketball Operations”

It's unclear what title Griffin will hold, because, well, the two sides haven't agreed on that yet.

The position was given to Danny Ferry on an interim basis, but the former Cavaliers forward told Wojnarowski that he pulled out of the running to remain with the Pelicans on a full-time basis.

Griffin has been out of the National Basketball Association since he parted ways with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017.

Minnesota traded Love to the Cavaliers.

Griffin has battled the injury for the past several weeks, getting pulled from the Pistons' second-to-last game against Memphis and missing the season finale against NY, games the Pistons needed to win - and did - to qualify for the last playoff spot.

Griffin also worked as an assistant GM role with the Cavs and in the Phoenix Suns' front office. Griffin's been here before, and he by all means got this job because the Pelicans believe he's the man that can best maximize the return on what will be a definite franchise-altering trade.

Gentry joined the Pelicans in the summer of 2015.

In 2014-15, Griffin was named the NBA Executive of the Year. "I know he has for sure let me grow". Both the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics will be in strong pursuit, with teams such as the Milwaukee Bucks, New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers also expected to try to make a run.

Davis, who averaged 25.9 points, 12 rebounds and 2.4 blocks in 56 games, made his trade demand with 32 games left in the season and wound up missing 17 of those games, sometimes for rest and at other times was listed as out with back spasms, including for the final seven games. Payton missed much of the season with injuries, but also put together a historically significant string of five straight triple-doubles this spring.
