Cleveland Cavaliers Rumor Mill: Team offering Chauncey Billups 5-year deal to run front office

CLEVELAND - In a day filled with twists and turns in the Cleveland Cavaliers crazy offseason, we may finally have some real news.

Just prior to midnight on Wednesday, the Athletic's Jason Lloyd tweeted out the following: 

Billups and the Cavaliers have reportedly spent two days meeting after the team parted ways with General Manager David Griffin on Monday. 

ESPN's Brian Windhorst added this post on Twitter early Thursday: 

If Billups accepts the Cavs' offer, he would be venturing down the path of working in an NBA front office for the first time. Billups played 17 years in the NBA, most notably as a member of the Detroit Pistons, where he helped lead them to the 2004 NBA title. 

Since retiring in 2014, Billups has served as an NBA analyst for ESPN. He also was set to participate in BIG3, a professional 3-on-3 league created by rapper/actor Ice Cube featuring former NBA greats and players. 

Ice Cube may have prematurely announced Billups' acceptance of a Cavaliers' offer during an interview with TMZ.
