Byron Scott was very pleased with general manager Chris Grant's ability to acquire an unprotected lottery pick from the Clippers ahead of the deadline.
Scott went so far as to hug Grant.
"I told him he did an unbelievable job," Scott said.
The trade of Mo Williams and Jamario Moon for Baron Davis and the pick was Grant's first major move as general manager.
"I think he answered a whole lot of questions," Scott said. "We all felt he was definitely the right man for the job. The man knows what he's doing. He didn't panic. He wanted to stand pat and make sure we did the right thing."
"I feel great about our situation," Grant said. "We have the tools and resources to put ourselves in a position to do things the right way. From our standpoint, this is one of the best opportunities to be in."
The Cavaliers will also have their own draft pick, which is almost guaranteed to be a top-four selection.
"The draft is pretty important, I think, in all sports. It's not often you have a team that has multiple picks that are unprotected picks in the top 10 in the same year."
