Cavaliers extend new GM Chris Grant's contract to five years

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.

    I’m getting sick of everybody trying to invade this country, Muslims want to build a Mosque at ground zero, a Russian buys the Nets and the Chinese. Everything is made in China, I’m sick of it. They are taking the one sided trade deficit with us and building the military up. And now some wedge heads want to buy part of the Cav’s. Defeat liberalism and grow a pair. This country is making George Washington and our founding fathers roll over in their graves

    How horrible was Danny Ferry that a roster that effectively lost only one player “needs to be stripped down and rebuilt from the ground up.”
