The market is heating up for Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin , who does not have a contract beyond this season. The Orlando Magic are interested in Griffin as a potential candidate to fill their vacancy, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports .

In other words, Cavaliers general manager David Griffin – who’s still without a contract for next season – lost his leverage with other teams. Multiple sources told cleveland.com that the Bucks, who lost general manager John Hammond to the Orlando Magic this week, have interest in Griffin , 47.

Assistant general manager Matt Lloyd is currently managing the Magic on an interim basis ahead of the NBA draft. He is another candidate for the job, Wojnarowski wrote.

Cleveland's title run is largely attributable to the return of LeBron James, but it was Griffin who built a championship caliber supporting cast with limited resources. He negotiated long-term extensions with Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, and Kyrie Irving while adding cheap veteran talent in J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye, Kyle Korver, and Richard Jefferson to fill out the rotation.

Griffin also has the full support of James, who went to bat over Griffin's contract before the playoffs began.

"It makes no sense why he shouldn't get an extension," James said. "He's pulled every move - he's tried to make every move happen - to better this team to be able to compete for a championship. So, we wouldn't be in this position, obviously, without him and without the guys that are here - from the coaching staff to the players to Griff. He's been a big piece of it."

Griffin has served as general manager of the Cavaliers since 2014 when he took over in the interim following the dismissal of Chris Grant.
