CLEVELAND (AP) Koby Altman's next move with the Cavaliers will be personal.
Altman, who has been serving as Cleveland's interim general manager during a strange summer of activity, will be named the team's full-time GM, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Friday. The deal is being finalized and Altman's promotion is expected to be announced in "the next several days," said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the talks.
Altman has been with the Cavs since 2012 and had worked as David Griffin's assistant since after the 2016 NBA championship season. Griffin left the club last month after he couldn't work out a contract extension with owner Dan Gilbert, who has a track record for discarding GMs.
