Griffin to speak to Clippers about vacant GM job.

Cleveland Cavaliers assistant general manager David Griffin will interview with the Los Angeles Clippers about their vacant general manager position, as Cleveland has given the Clippers permission to speak to him, via The News-Herald's Bob Finnan:

Griffin will be interviewed, along with former Cavs GM Jim Paxson and ex-Nuggets GM Kiki Vandeweghe. Vandeweghe is considered the front-runner, according to the New York Daily News.

The job opened when Neil Olshey left to become Portland's GM.

Griffin joined the Cavs in September 2010 as the vice president of basketball operations. He works closely with Cavs GM Chris Grant on all basketball and GM matters and oversees the team's scouting and player personnel departments.

The Cavs, meanwhile, are busy preparing for the upcoming NBA Draft on June 28. They will work out Kentucky standout forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist on Wednesday.
