The Cleveland Cavaliers have fired general manager Chris Grant, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

The Cavaliers (16-33) have had another miserable season since LeBron James left in the summer of 2010.
The Cavs lost their 6th straight game last night, 119-108, against an undermanned Los Angeles Lakers team that played with a fouled out player.
Grant’s final move will be sending the failed signing that is Andrew Bynum to the Chicago Bulls for Luol Deng.
After landing the first overall pick and drafting Kyri Irving, Grant hasn’t done much else in the draft.
He’s drafted Dion Waiters, Triston Thompson, and this years number one overall pick Andrew Bennet over the likes of Victor Oladipo, Andre Drummond, Damian Lillard, and Harrison Barnes to name a few.
His top free agent signings haven’t panned out either. Bynum was already traded and Jarrett Jack and Earl Clark haven’t exactly been difference makers.
Grant was named GM of the Cavs back in 2010 and had just one year left on his contract.
Assistant GM David Griffin will be acting general manager for the time being.
