The Cleveland Cavaliers want to hire Chauncey Billups and have offered him a long-term contract to become their president of basketball operations. However, Billups has not accepted the job offer yet, and ESPN has sources that claim that Chauncey is "conflicted" about accepting the job offer.

The Cleveland Cavaliers job

Chauncey Billups met with the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday, and they spoke about Billups coming aboard the organization as team president. Chauncey would also be allowed to hire an experienced general manager to work alongside him to help build the team after the Cavaliers, and David Griffin parted ways.

The problem is that Chauncey Billups doesn't know if he even wants to work for Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. Over the years, Gilbert has proven that he is not good at working with his front office personnel, as evident with his deteriorated relationship with David Griffin.

Also, Chauncey likes living in Denver with his family and just commuting to Los Angeles to do his television work on ESPN. The Cleveland Cavaliers offered Billups a five-year contract to run the front office of the Cavaliers.

LeBron James

There is also a problem when it comes to LeBron James. This upcoming season is the final one for LeBron under his current contract. With an NBA Championship and the rise of the Golden State Warriors, there have been rumors that James might head to Los Angeles after his contract ends, having fulfilled his promise to bring a title to Cleveland.

If LeBron James leaves Cleveland, there is a good chance that Dan Gilbert will take it out on his front office and that might be a tough situation for Chauncey Billups to end up in. However, it is not his relationship with LeBron that will bring Billups to Cleveland. It would be his relationship with head coach Tyronn Lue.

Chauncey Billups played 20 years in the NBA and won an NBA Championship with the Detroit Pistons. Lue played at the same time as Chauncey, winning two NBA titles himself for the Los Angels Lakers. As a former champion, Billups has never been shy about calling out players for ESPN.

During the Cleveland Cavaliers game against the Toronto Raptors in May, LeBron James played with the ball and made Serge Ibaka look foolish before making a shot over his head.

Chauncey Billups said that if it had been him instead of Serge, he would have been hit with a flagrant because he won't let anyone disres[pect him like LeBron disrespects his opposition. It is curious to see how the two will interact if Billups accepts the position.
