Cavs GM: Newton Out

The Cavs have passed on the Wizards' Milt Newton.

From the Plain Dealer: Since Newton has a close relationship with Detroit Pistons coach Larry Brown, who several league sources expect to become the Cavs president of basketball operations, this move could indicate Brown no longer is coming to Cleveland. But sources say not hiring Newton will have no bearing on Brown's decision.

That would be sweet. I was never a big fan of the Newton, Washington's moves have been okay lately (and maybe he could've had the inside track on Kwame Brown), but if this means no fickle Larry Brown running the franchise, then great.
