In an unprecedented move for Dan Gilbert’s Cleveland Cavaliers, current general manager Koby Altman is being extended until the 2027-2028 season.
The timing of this move is somewhat surprising. A front office with job security doesn’t need to make a win now move like trading a first for Eric Gordon if it’s not something they believe is in the team’s best long term interest. That’s not really something that we’ve been able to say about any of the other previous GMs. We’ll see what additional moves Altman has up his sleeve as the Cavs look to add to the roster for a second-half playoff push.
