In a statement, Cavs chairman Dan Gilbert says that he would “like to thank Griff for his leadership and many contributions during his time here, including most recently, his role in the franchise’s first NBA Championship.
The Cavs said they have no announcement regarding Griffin’s replacement.
Some reports have former NBA All-Star Chauncy Billups in the running to replace Griffin.
