It's been a roller-coaster of an offseason for the Cavaliers and LeBron James isn't pleased.
James is frustrated and concerned about Cleveland's ability to construct a team that can better compete with the Warriors, according to USA Today Sports' Jeff Zillgitt.
On June 19 -- one week after the Cavs' Game 5 loss to the Warriors in the NBA Finals and three days before the NBA Draft -- owner Dan Gilbert elected to part ways with GM David Griffin (the press release said it was a mutal decision).
Before he left the organization, Griffin was reportedly close to acquiring Jimmy Butler.

As Zillgitt writes: "Expecting an aggressive offseason approach that would close the gap on the champion Golden State Warriors, James soon found his anticipation and optimism diminished after Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert dismantled the front office."
Cleveland re-signed Kyle Korver and added Jose Calderon.
LeBron, who will turn 33 years old on Dec. 30, can opt out of his contract and become a free agent next summer.
