Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert is reportedly expected to continue conversations with Chauncey Billups on Wednesday regarding the team's general manager vacancy, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

Per ESPN's Dave McMenamin, Gilbert interviewed Billups for the job Tuesday.

It was announced Monday that the Cavaliers and general manager David Griffin were parting ways after three years.

Griffin's contract was set to expire, and the sides couldn't reach a new agreement.

Per ESPN.com, Gilbert is familiar with Billups due in part to the five-time All-Star endorsing his company, Rock Financial, during his time as a player with the Detroit Pistons.

The 40-year-old Billups is an ESPN analyst, and he has no front office experience.

He did enjoy a 17-year career as a player, however, that included an NBA championship and an MVP nod in the 2004 NBA Finals.
