David Griffin is out as general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers as the team announced on Monday that the two sides have mutually decided to part ways.

Griffin only had one year remaining on his contract and according to several reports, the uncertainty of his future was causing problems with trade talks.

“Cavs front office had difficulty in trade talks this week, constantly needing to address Griffin’s future with rival executives,” Adrian Wojarowski wrote on Twitter. “Tough spot.”

This is a developing story.
