Most were baffled by David Griffin’s departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers at the start of the offseason, mostly because it wasn’t deserving (the man helped bring a title to Cleveland and built a roster that had them in the NBA Finals three-straight years) and unwarranted. This led to a series of downward spiral events for the organization and team, most notably the fall out between Kyrie Irving and Lebron James.
Now, months after the fact, Griffin joined ESPN’s The Jump to talk about the next chapter and his career and what he’s planning on doing next.
Professionally, he wants to grow and evolve. He doesn’t quite know what that means yet, but for the time being, being an analyst or making cameos on ESPN is fine for him at the moment. Of course, he’s going to want to jump back into the GM booth, if and when a team has a position for him and he decides to build them up.
There were a few positions that looked attractive before he left, but things didn’t quite work out with the timing for him to get in the mix. Most notably, that Milwaukee Bucks spot.
