Which Teams LeBron Might Leave The Cavs For

Former point guard Chauncey Billups is supposedly the front-runner for the job, Yahoo Sports reported.

In addition to his relationship with Gilbert, Billups is also close with Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue. Meanwhile, the owner's announcement was likely meant to restore some clarity to a situation that remains highly unsettled at a very delicate time. The Cavaliers LeBron James who sources say was not consulted on the decision tweeted out support of Griffin.

At the moment, Cleveland has no picks in that draft, but it does appear to have a need for a roster shake-up, given what appeared to a clear talent disparity during its 4-1 Finals loss to the Warriors. Apparently, Billups is about to meet with Dan Gilbert, the owner of the Cavaliers, on Tuesday and they will discuss a potential hiring of Billups as a new general manager for the Cavaliers. Before Griffin's departure, the team was reportedly in talks trying to acquire the Indiana Pacers Paul George or the Bulls Jimmy Butler. He holds a $35.6 million player option in his contract after next season, so if he doesn't like what he sees, he could bolt Cleveland again - to the Los Angeles Lakers, perhaps? - leaving a power vacuum in the East.

GOP baseball team coach: 'We need to play this game'
Williams, a former minor-league baseball player, has coached the GOP Congressional team since 2013, according to his office. Texas Tribune's Washington Bureau Chief Abby Livingston said this comes after tense weeks filled with members of the U.S.

Owner Dan Gilbert said in a statement, "On behalf of the entire organization I would like to thank Griff for his leadership and many contributions during his time here, including his role in the franchise's first National Basketball Association championship".

Gilbert added that there would be "no announcement at this time related to new leadership of the Cavaliers basketball operations group". In a statement, Griffin said he was appreciative of the opportunity given to him by Gilbert. But how will he fit in a new role in the front office?
