  • INDEPENDENCE OH- SEPTEMBER 26 Head coach David Blatt and general manager David Griffin of the Cleveland Cavaliers answers questions during media day at Cleveland Clinic Courts

He was most recently the Cleveland Cavaliers GM in 2017. His job title with the Pelicans is expected to be the executive vice president of basketball operations.

Prior to replacing Demps, Ferry had been serving in a consultant role.

Danny Ferry had held the GM job on an interim basis but decided he didn't want the job permanently, he told Wojnarowski.

Griffin will take over for former Pelicans general manger Dell Demps, who was sacked in the middle of his ninth season with the club - a few weeks after All-Star Anthony Davis' trade request in late January. Davis wore "That's All Folks" at the team's last game. However, he did not get his wish, as he remained with the Pelicans and was placed on a minutes restriction to prevent an injury.

Griffin, 45, joined the Cavaliers as vice president of basketball operations in September 2010 and added full-time GM to his duties in May 2014.

After being hired as the Cavaliers GM, he hired David Blatt, who was the reigning Euroleague Champion and Coach of the Year at the time.

The Pelicans will also have a lottery pick in the National Basketball Association draft in June.

Superstar LeBron James returned to the Cavs a few months later and was a big supporter of Griffin. The highlights of his tenure included a trade that brought star power forward Kevin Love to the Cavs. Philadelphia also traded Thaddeus Young to the Timberwolves.

"If I was holding their cards, I would probably want to be in a situation where I got at least one young player that projected potentially to be a star", Griffin said in a January 29 segment on NBA TV.

His contract was not renewed after the 2016-17 season.
