The Cleveland Cavaliers are finalizing a deal to promote Koby Altman to general manager, league sources told ESPN.

A formal announcement of Altman’s promotion from assistant general manager to GM is expected soon, league sources said.

Altman gives the Cavaliers instant credibility around the NBA on an operations and deal-making front, but his undertaking is massive: Handle Kyrie Irving’s trade request and LeBron James’ pending free agency in 2018.

Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert has been closing on the Altman promotion for weeks now, turning his focus to him in the wake of Chauncey Billups declining an offer to become president of basketball operations, league sources told ESPN.
