The Cleveland Cavaliers have today fired General Manager, Chris Grant according to Yahoo Sports.

Yahoo's NBA writer, Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted earlier today: "The Cleveland Cavaliers have fired general manager Chris Grant, league sources tell Yahoo Sports."

Grant had been with the team since 2005 and became the GM in 2010 after Danny Ferry resigned.

The Cavaliers have struggled in recent years after letting star player LeBron James leave during free-agency in 2010.

The team are currently in 12th position in the Eastern Conference, five games out of the playoffs at this stage.

This year Grant has been responsible for drafting Anthony Bennett, who has averaged three points a game for the team.

Despite trading for All-Star forward, Luol Deng, the team have failed to remain competitive in the injury-plagued Eastern Conference.

It is not yet clear who will replace Grant as GM.
