Can Danny Ferry get LeBron James to re-sign with Cleveland Cavaliers?
Danny Ferry’s contract expires in 30 days, but if it is his last month as the Cavaliers general manager, no one within the organization seems to be worrying about it.
Since last summer, Ferry has firmly declined to talk about his future in any setting. Owner Dan Gilbert has declined several interview requests on the matter.
The signs are there, however, that Ferry plans on staying and that Gilbert wants him back. It is possible one of the reasons for the silence is that the two sides are talking about a new contract.
HoopsVibe’s Call: Is Danny Ferry the guy? Is the former Duke sharpshooter the guy to convince superstar LeBron James to shun the bright lights of New York and beaches of Miami to re-sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers?
Well, Dan Gilbert apparently thinks so because reports indicate the Cleveland owner will soon give Ferry a new multi-year contract.
Ferry’s record as GM is mixed. He’s not gun shy and has made several blockbuster trades. Problem is, even with Gilbert’s significant resources, he failed to find the right supporting cast for James to excel when it mattered the most in the playoffs.
For Ferry, it’s a case of quantity over quality. And it’s one more thing James must consider when July 1st hits.
