Owner Dan Gilbert's search to replace departed general manager David Griffin remains unresolved as talks with former National Basketball Association star Chauncey Billups have not progressed to a job offer.

Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin talks with the media before the game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Chicago Bulls at Quicken Loans Arena.

Billups has no previous executive experience, but he does have a long-standing relationship with Gilbert and knows the league well. Billups is very close friends with Cavs coach Ty Lue, and the challenge of being objectively critical is - not surprisingly - something to consider.

Cleveland's front-office shake-up came days before Thursday's draft. ESPN's Brian Windhorst reported that Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert didn't consult with James before deciding not to give Griffin a new contract, even though James had lobbied for Griffin to get an extension.

As Gilbert looks for someone to replace Griffin, the 40-year-old Billups would seem to be a ideal fit. Griffin never wanted to trade Love for Anthony, and there has been no indication the Cavs are pursuing such a deal now. Trent Redden, who served as the senior vice president of basketball operations, is also not returning next season. But he was a five-time All-Star, won a championship and was named a Finals MVP during his 17-year career.

CLEVELAND (AP) - An interesting, confusing, upsetting week for the Cavaliers hasn't settled down. However, Billups has not accepted the job offer yet, and ESPN has sources that claim that Chauncey is "conflicted" about accepting the job offer. Assistant general manager Koby Altman remains with the team and is part of a group overseeing draft preparation and trade talks. The Cleveland Cavaliers offered Billups a five-year contract to run the front office of the Cavaliers.

But despite Griffin's many successes, Gilbert decided they needed to go separate ways, ending a stretch of unprecedented accomplishments for the Cavs. The more immediate concern is for Gilbert, who has gone through four GMs in 12 years as Cleveland's owner, to find someone to oversee the daily operations. No doubt he'll make the most of this job if he chooses to take it, but it's a shame that this looks like it's going to be his first shot at such a job.
