Cavs owner Dan Gilbert decided to part ways with general manager David Griffin and vice president of basketball operations Trent Redden only days before the 2017 NBA Draft after the two sides reportedly “just couldn’t agree on the future.” That decision was a cause for consternation for James, according to Zillgitt, because of James’ concern about the Cavs competing with the Warriors in the offseason arms race.
