Paxson's days numbered?

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith is reporting that the Cavaliers will fire GM Jim Paxson within the next 48 hours. The writing seemed to be on the wall last month when Paul Silas was fired and, during the ensuing press conference, team owner Dan Gilbert refused to address Paxson’s future with the Cavaliers.

The question now (assuming the report is true, of course) is who does Gilbert bring in as the new GM? Considering his track record, especially during the draft, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find someone better than Paxson.

By the way, did the Cavaliers really lose to New Jersey by 31 points Tuesday night? Ugh.
