David Griffin was named the 10th General Manager in Cleveland Cavaliers history on May 12, 2014. As the GM, he manages and oversees all aspects of scouting, personnel, player acquisitions and transactions, and all team operations. He also oversees the Cavs’ exclusive NBA Development League affiliate, the Canton Charge. With community involvement being integral to Griffin’s focus with the team, he also guides the team’s player appearance committee in partnership with the business side of the Cavs organization. Since being named General Manager, Griffin’s teams have compiled a 161-85 (.654) record, captured three Eastern Conference Championships, and the franchise’s first ever NBA title (2016) while winning 73 percent of their postseason games (43-16). Cleveland has garnered at least 50 wins and reached the NBA Finals in all three seasons under Griffin, most recently going 51-31 in 2016-17.
