Denver GM will talk to Cleveland at predraft workout

The Nuggets have reversed course and will allow Kiki Vandeweghe and the Cavs to talk, a league source told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Vandeweghe, who has one year remaining on his deal with Denver, will interview with the team at the Chicago predraft camp, the paper reported.

The Nuggets general manager spoke by phone with Cleveland last month, but said it had nothing to do with him leaving Denver.

Vandeweghe was hired in 2001 after serving as the Mavericks' director of player development. The former Nugget has
drafted Carmelo Anthony, traded for Marcus Camby, Kenyon Martin and
Nene, and signed free agents Andre Miller and Earl Boykins.

He also acquired veterans Eduardo Najera and Wesley Person last
season, the second in a row the team made the playoffs after
missing out for nine consecutive years.
