Cavaliers Determined to Get Team Back on Track
(CLEVELAND) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers have been one of the most disappointing teams in the NBA this season and after recently firing general manager Chris Grant, the acting general manager David Griffin is determined the help pick up the pieces.
"Certainly, it's a great deal of adversity right now and from that, quite frankly, I think come the greatest opportunities," said Griffin, who has been part of an NBA front office for 21 years in various capacities, and joined the Cavaliers franchise back in 2010. "Sure, this isn't an easy situation. I'd be lying if I said it was. I can promise you this, it's one I'm very prepared for."
After landing the number one pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, the Cavaliers entered the 2013-2014 season with postseason expectations, but baring a late surge, they are likely heading to the lottery again.
Entering Monday night, the Cavaliers sit at 18-33 and four games behind the Charlotte Bobcats for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
