Shelburne: “Look for” Clippers to Call David Griffin

Another big name could be joining the front office.

According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin could be in line to have a role in the Clippers’ front office. The Clippers have Doc Rivers currently running basketball operations with the assistance of Lawrence Frank, Dave Wohl, and Jerry West. Adding Griffin, an accomplished NBA GM and 2016 NBA Champion, would be another step towards building a front office “super team” in L.A.

Clippers obviously have a full front office with the addition of Jerry West. But look for them to call David Griffin like they did w/ KG

Shelburne references Garnett, who worked with Clippers players intermittently last year as a consultant despite not joining the coaching staff full-time. It’s possible that Griffin could be an advisor or part-time consultant for the season in L.A. while he waits for new front office openings next summer.

NBA Off-Season 2017: Cleveland Cavaliers to Part Ways With David Griffin

The two sides “couldn’t agree on the future.”

According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the Cleveland Cavaliers are parting ways with David Griffin, their general manager. Griffin had success with the Cavaliers, winning the 2016 NBA championship and making the finals two other times in 2015 and 2017.

The terms of Griffin’s departure are unclear, but he was working on an expiring contract and the two sides are apparently unable to reach an agreement on an extension. Adrian Wojnarowski reports that former Clippers guard Chauncey Billups is one possible candidate to replace Griffin.

Sources: As David Griffin departs as Cavs -- "Just couldn't agree on future," source says - Chauncey Billups expected to emerge as candidate

— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) June 19, 2017

The Clippers, who are making an effort to beef up the organization in preparation for the impending free agencies of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, could be among the teams interested in Griffin. One area of priority has been altering the front-office decision-making structure, as the Clippers today introduced NBA legend Jerry West as a new consultant who will work with Doc Rivers.

David Griffin could operate as the Clippers’ General Manager, replacing Dave Wohl who currently holds the role but does not have decision-making authority and merely advises Rivers.

DraftKings, FanDuel merger violates antitrust laws, FTC says

The planned merger of daily fantasy sports leaders DraftKings and FanDuel is on hold, after the Federal Trade Commission announced Monday it would file a complaint to block the merger on grounds it violates antitrust laws.

The complaint, which will be filed jointly with the office of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, alleges the merged company would control more than 90 percent of the daily fantasy sports market, thus potentially representing a monopoly.
