Report: Koby Altman agrees on a contract extension, higher executive position from Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Koby Altman are set for a much longer partnership.

Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojarowski, Altman has agreed for a contract extension valid until 2027-2028 season and a higher position in the team’s executive hierarchy — as he is now Cleveland’s newest president of basketball operations.

Altman constructed the commendable and promising foundation of the Cavaliers’ new era following the LeBron James saga, further ushering the franchise for a bright future after drafting Collin Sexton, Darius Garland, Isaac Okoro and Evan Mobley. He also delivered big time trades and landed skyscraping big man Jarrett Allen, currently sidelined point general Ricky Rubio, and all-time playmaker Rajon Rondo — key players who made a critical difference on the sudden emergence. Moreover, he inked a deal with J.B. Bickerstaff as the head coach of the ball club — one of the possible candidates for Coach of the Year this 2021-2022 campaign who also received his very own extended contract. 

The Cavs (23-18) are currently sitting at the sixth spot of the Eastern Conference and just four games away from the home court advantage ranking.

Altman initially took the general manager role in July 2017 and started his stint with the organization since 2012.
