Hawks Plan To Hire Cavs Director Of Player Personnel Wes Wilcox As Assistant GM, According To Report

Cleveland Cavaliers director of player personnel Wes Wilcox will leave that post to be the assistant general manager for the Atlanta Hawks, according to ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst:

Cleveland's front office has been in the news this offseason. The Cavaliers retained assistant general manager David Griffin after Griffin removed himself from the running for the Los Angeles Clippers' GM vacancy. But the team was nonetheless raided by Atlanta as part of Ferry's ongoing makeover of the Hawks organization.

Windhorst was granted "behind the scenes" access with the Cavs on draft night, producing this feature which mentioned Wilcox multiple times. The article portrays Wilcox as an integral member of the Cavs front office.

Cavaliers Assistant GM David Griffin No Longer Candidate For Clippers GM Job

Cleveland Cavaliers assistant general manager David Griffin has removed himself from the running to become the new GM of the Los Angeles Clippers, according to a post from ESPN.com.

Citing an unnamed source, ESPN writes that Griffin had conversations with L.A. officials at a pre-draft camp in Chicago a few weeks ago. But Griffin, who was hired by Cleveland in 2010, reportedly felt that it wasn't a good career move at this time.

From the article:

The Clippers have moved methodically in their search to replace Neil Olshey, who left to become the general manager of the Portland Trail Blazers on June 11. Former Denver general manager Kiki Vandeweghe is the only candidate to have formally interviewed for the job, according to sources.

The club has also had preliminary conversations with Jim Paxson, Larry Harris, Jeff Weltman and Tony DiLeo, according to sources, but the Clippers seem to have turned their focus to Thursday's draft, where they hold the 53rd pick, and free agency.

The article says that the Clippers will not have a GM in place for the early part of the free agency period, let alone in time for Thursday's NBA Draft.
