Koby Altman renews head of Cleveland office until 2028

The Cavaliers are committed to continuity at the helm of their management. As reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the current general manager of the organization, Koby Altman, has signed a contract extension until the 2027-28 academic year that will make him the president of basketball operations from now on.

In Cleveland they are happy with the work of the executive, who has managed to redirect the situation of the franchise after the goodbye of LeBron James almost four years ago. In the franchise they have especially liked his acquisitions in the draft with players like Darius Garland or Evan Mobley as props, as well as his movements in the market to acquire pieces like Jarrett Allen or Ricky Rubio, who loses the remainder of the course due to injury .

With these decisions, the team has grown to the point of being sixth in the Eastern Conference at 23-18. It is likely that he will lose such status due to the many injuries he is sustaining, but it is certainly a piece of information to look to the future with optimism.

Regarding Altman’s journey, he is an employee trained within the Cavs. He came to the main office in 2012 as part of the professional personnel department, soon to be promoted to the position of assistant general manager. It was in July 2017, a year after Cleveland was champion, that he became the team’s general manager. Now, with the renewal, he sees his role supported.

Altman’s contract extension is thus added to the one signed by JB Bickerstaff weeks ago. The team’s coach, who arrived in 2019 as an assistant, is another key to the good step the Cavaliers are taking, perhaps the team that has surprised the most so far this season.
