Report: Why Chauncey Billups Didn't Want The Cavs' Job

Here's reportedly why the ESPN analyst said no to the job.

Chauncey Billups won't be the Cavs' next GM.

The former NBA star and current ESPN analyst has reportedly withdrawn his name from consideration for the open position.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news.

Why would Billups, someone with no prior experience who's said running a team is his "dream job," turn down the position?

Here's reportedly why, from ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

It's definitely not a great look for the Cavs to part ways with a successful GM, make a run at someone with no prior experience, and then have that person turn you down.

But that's Dan Gilbert.
