Former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin who was released by Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert since they agreed to go their separate way at the end of the 2016-17 National Basketball Association (NBA) Finals losing to the Golden State Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals is currently in negotiations to be the general manager of the New York Knicks basketball team.
New York Knicks owner James Dolan would be wise to hire Griffin as the new general manager of the New York Knicks who have not an NBA Championship since the 1972-73 basketball season since Griffin was able to get the Cleveland Cavaliers their first NBA championship in the history of their franchise in the 2014-15 basketball season.
The catch is that when an owner likes to take control of a basketball team, he does not like the general manager to run the team as Griffin would like to run the team with his employees instead of the employees that Griffin would be working with the Knicks.
Now here is a fun idea that could happen at the beginning of the 2018-19 basketball season. Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James who can become a free agent at the end of the 2017-18 basketball season could leave the Cavaliers and sign a contract with the New York Knicks if his relationship with Gilbert is beyond repair after the end of the next basketball season.
