Cavaliers’ Chris Grant Rejected GM position with the Hawks

Cleveland Cavaliers executive Chris Grant decided to stay with the Cavaliers as Danny Ferry’s top aid and rejected a General Manager position with the Atlanta Hawks. According to ESPN, Chris Grant “spent the weekend mulling Atlanta’s proposal” and he was “the only candidate to date who was actually offered the job, which came open May 6 when Knight abruptly resigned”.  Atlanta offered the job to Grant and ceased speaking to other candidates expecting him to accept.

Before coming to Cleveland, Grant spent nine years with the Hawks and worked under Pete Babcock and Billy Knight.
