    Cavs target Morway for GM

    Pacers executive reportedly is front-runner for job

    By Brian Windhorst

    Beacon Journal staff writer

    The Cavaliers might be moving closer to rebuilding their front office.

    According to an NBA insider, Indiana Pacers executive David Morway has become the front-runner to replace Jim Paxson as the Cavaliers' general manager. He could be hired once the Pacers are eliminated from the playoffs.

    A former football and basketball agent, Morway has been a ranking official in the Pacers' organization for the past seven years. He is currently the vice president of basketball administration.

    Known for his expertise with the salary cap and for talent evaluation -- he's been a leader in the Pacers' draft process during his tenure -- Morway generally has a good reputation around the NBA. Morway, 44, fits the parameters of what Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert said he wanted in a general manager, someone from a ``highly successful organization.''

    The Cavaliers are also moving ahead in their pursuit of a coach. Persons with knowledge of the search report former Golden State Warriors coach and current Memphis Grizzlies assistant Eric Musselman interviewed with the Cavaliers earlier this week in Detroit.

    Morway has been in Detroit, where Gilbert lives, with the Pacers for their series with the Pistons this week.

    Musselman is also expected to interview for the Orlando Magic coaching vacancy.

    The Cavaliers have interviewed former Minnesota Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders. Once thought to be the front-runner, it doesn't appear Saunders and the Cavaliers are close.

    NBA insiders report Saunders has been offered the Portland Trail Blazers coaching job and was hoping to get an offer from the Cavaliers and perhaps a bidding war. So far, however, the Cavaliers haven't made an offer.

    Man, does Donnie have the leadership engine working or what?

    This would be, what, the fifth GM to come from the Pacers?

    I say we secretly keep him on the Pacer payroll.

    Seems like Bender for LeBron would be a great trade. Right Mr. Morway?

    Uh, okay. When have we ever done well where the salary cap is concerned? Not that it even matters, this isn't football. It's not that complicated.

    Haha, nice.

    "In tonights top story, a shocking trade took place between the Indiana Pacers and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Pacers trade Center John Edwards to the Cavaliers for every Cavs draft pick in the next 15 years, Lebron James, and Zydrunas Illgauskas. David Stern may deny this trade on the account that he hates the living **** out of the Pacers."
