    Ferry close to finalizing deal

    Auburn Hills, Mich.

    -- Former Cavaliers forward Danny Ferry is close to finalizing a deal to become Cavs General Manager, according to an NBA executive close to the situation.

    The deal between the Cavs and Ferry is expected to be done following the end of the NBA Fi nals between the Detroit Pis tons and the San Antonio Spurs. Ferry, who will re place former Cavs GM Jim Paxson, is the Spurs' director of basketball operations.

    Ferry, who interviewed with the Cavaliers twice last week, said before Sunday night's Game 5 of the NBA Finals his attention is on that series.

    Ferry has been in the Spurs' front office since September 2003 after playing 13 NBA seasons. He was selected by the Los Angeles Clippers with the second overall pick in the 1989 draft. Ferry held out and played in Italy before signing with the Cavs, who got his rights from the Clippers following a trade that included Ron Harper.

    Ferry spent 10 years with the Cavs. He is the Cavs' all-time leader in games played with 723.

    This hire would reunite Ferry and Cavs coach Mike Brown. Brown was an assistant coach with the Spurs for three seasons.

    Pistons coach Larry Brown remains the leading candidate to become the Cavs' President of Basketball Operations. Brown has said he will not make any decisions about his future until he visits the Mayo Clinic at the end of the finals. Brown has had bladder-related complications due to hip surgery during the season.

    I don't consider someone a "Former Pacer" when they never once suited up for the team.

    Does Ferry even qualify as a former pacer?

    Does that make Chris webber a "former" member of the Orlando Magic?

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I think it was used as a joke on purpose.

    I didn't really read the topic name and thought it had been the guy in the Pacer's organization that had been rumored in the mix for the job.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Will Darko be considered a former Piston once he leaves?

    It's a side-effect of the Brad Miller trade. We got him via San Antonio; or rather his expiring contract.
