Their shocking collapse complete, the Cleveland Cavaliers began to rebuild on Thursday from the top.
Jim Paxson was fired as the club's general manager, dismissed by new owner Dan Gilbert one day after the Cavaliers' chaotic season ended short of the
NBA playoffs for the seventh consecutive year.
Expected for weeks, Paxson's firing came exactly one month after coach Paul Silas was fired with 18 games left by Gilbert, the online mortgage banker
who has had a rough introduction into operating a pro sports franchise.
