Zydrunas Ilgauskas joins Cavs front office:

Former Cleveland Cavs and Miami Heat center Zydrunas Ilgauskas has been hired by the Cavs to join their front office as the Special Assistant to the General Manager.

WTAM 1100 AM has some details:

The announcement was made today by Cavs General Manager Chris Grant. In his role as Special Assistant to the General Manager, Ilgauskas will be involved with front office responsibilities, including evaluation of amateur and professional prospects.

"We are very pleased to have Z begin the next phase of his basketball career with the Cavaliers and I am looking forward to working closely with him. Z has always had a great desire to learn and succeed and he already has a deep understanding and appreciation of the game and the NBA. We are extremely happy to welcome him back as part of our franchise," said Grant.

"I am really excited to come back to the Cavaliers, a team that I have so much history with and contributing to our future success," said Ilgauskas. "I’m also looking forward to learning more about this game that I love so much and working with Chris Grant and the rest of the organization in every way that I can."

After 12 years in Cleveland, Ilgauskas signed with the Miami Heat with the goal of winning a championship with former Cavs teammate LeBron James. After going back and forth about returning this season, Ilgauskas picked up his player option after the NBA Finals for the second year of his contract but ultimately decided to retire in late September.
