Kyrie Irving Expresses Concerns About Cleveland Cavaliers Current State

Kyrie Irving Expresses Concerns About Cleveland Cavaliers Current State

USA Today's Jeff Zillgitt has reported that James is "frustrated and concerned" by the Cavaliers' lack of offseason moves.

The source says LeBron was expecting an "aggressive offseason" but was dismayed when owner Dan Gilbert made a decision to part ways with GM David Griffin just days before the draft. The Warriors, of course, defeated the Cavaliers handily in five games in the NBA Finals. Thus far, the Cavs offseason signings have included Jeff Green, Jose Calderon, Kyle Korver and Cedi Osman, but they missed out on guys like Paul George and Jimmy Butler, which reportedly hasn't sat well with LeBron James.

James soon found his anticipation and optimism diminished after Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert dismantled the front office, declining days before the draft and free agency to bring back general manager David Griffin and vice president of basketball operations Trent Redden.

There's so many rumors about LeBron James leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for a second time in his career. The team now does not have a general manager.

Appearing on ESPN's The Jump, Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Cavaliers and Pacers almost agreed to terms on a deal that would have allowed George to team up with James and Irving.

Gilbert, who had been skating on thin-ice with James after he penned a disparaging letter when James left for Miami in 2010, had not consulted him before the team parted ways with Griffin.

Crawford wasn't changing the Cavaliers' fortunes in a meaningful way, but James thought he would make the team better and the Cavaliers didn't get him. How much longer the "Championship DNA" contributed to the Cavs by LeBron James will be around is also looking uncertain.

Kyrie, who is under contract with Cleveland for the next three seasons, responded by saying the Cavs are in a very peculiar place.
