David Griffin's uncertain future was becoming a problem in negotiations with other teams.

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.

Owner Dan Gilbert released a statement saying that the two sides "mutually decided to not extend David's current contract."

Griffin's contract was set to expire at the end of June 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."

Gilbert did not announce a replacement for Griffin.

This is a developing story.
