The Milwaukee Bucks remain interested in Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin, but they’ll need to wait at least a couple weeks to pitch him on a job.

The Cavs won’t grant the Bucks permission to interview Griffin until after the NBA Finals, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.

The Cavs also rejected previous requests from the Orlando Magic and Atlanta Hawks to speak to Griffin during the playoffs, and both teams have subsequently moved on. In fact, the Magic’s failure to get any traction with Griffin is the reason the Bucks are now in the market for a new GM, as Orlando poached John Hammond from Milwaukee.

Griffin’s contract with Cleveland expires at the end of this season, and it’s unclear whether the Cavs will let him test the market or work quickly to try to re-sign him. LeBron James has pushed ownership to extend the man who’s constructed the defending champions’ roster.
