Former NBA general manger Bobby Marks, now of ESPN, said in an insider report Wednesday even though he is approaching his first trade deadline as the GM of a team, Cleveland’s Koby Altman is no stranger to the tasks that are facing him.
Altman, a first-year GM, is not a newcomer to the trade deadline, having served an apprenticeship under David Griffin the past four years.
Since being named GM in July, Altman has made two trades — the Kyrie Irving blockbuster in August and the salary dump of Richard Jefferson to Atlanta before the season.
The NBA trade deadline this season is Feb. 8. The Cavaliers were always one of the most active teams in the league at the deadline under the leadership of Griffin, so do not be shocked to see Altman, the second-youngest GM in the league, follow in his footsteps.
