The Cavs fired head coach Mike Brown and let go of GM Danny Ferry. What's next in Cleveland?

While the NBA Finals is still underway, most teams have already started their offseason. This is, by far, the biggest offseason in Cleveland Cavaliers history. Lebron James is a free agent and the team hopes to get him back, no matter what it takes. Apparently, the thinking is that Mike Brown and Danny Ferry were not Lebron's favorite people because both are now gone from the team.

According to reports, Ferry did not want to fire Brown but owner Dan Gilbert forced his hand. This made the decision for Ferry and the Cavs to part ways much easier. His assistant, Chris Grant, will now take over his duties but it is clear that Gilbert will be calling the shots.

What's next for the Cavs? They are making desperate moves to convince Lebron to stay, so they will look to change the team. Guards Mo Williams (who has shown he can't be trusted in the playoffs) and Delonte West (fresh off his rumored affair with Lebron's mom) are being shopped around the NBA. However, the Cavs can not expect to get much in return for either player.

Other teams can offer better teammates or a potential partnership with another superstar. The Lebron sweepstakes are starting to heat up (pun intended) and Cleveland has to hope home court advantage is enough to convince him to stay.
