Griffin's first order of business will likely be a trade of Anthony Davis.
Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry worked with Griffin with the Suns, and he interviewed Griffin for the Cavaliers' head-coaching job that eventually went to David Blatt.

The position was given to Danny Ferry on an interim basis, but the former Cavaliers forward told Wojnarowski that he pulled out of the running to remain with the Pelicans on a full-time basis.Читайте также: Truex Finally Wins At A Short Track
