Congratulations Chris Grant, the job completely rebuilding the Cleveland Cavaliers is now yours.
Grant, the assistant general manager who was promoted to the big chair when Danny Ferry was let go, had his contract extended to five years, according to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Back in 2008 Grant was a frontrunner for the Hawks GM job but turned it down and got a five-year deal with the Cavaliers. This new deal is an extension of that one with a raise, Windhorst said.
Grant has about the least enviable GM job around — an emotionally devastated fan base and a team that needs to be stripped down and rebuilt from the ground up. That means a few years of losing. We’ll see how well Grant can do that job, and how much owner Dan Gilbert gets I his way.
