Altman has presided over the Cavaliers’ basketball operations since 2017, including the franchise’s rebuild following LeBron James’s second departure form the team in 2018.
He helped land cornerstones Darius Garland and Evan Mobley in the draft and traded for All-star guard Donovan Mitchell last summer.
Last season marked the first time Cleveland has made the postseason without James on its roster since 1998.
If convicted, Altman could face punishment from the league with precedent set after the NBA suspended Spurs guard Devonte Graham for the first two games of the 2023-24 regular season after his DWI conviction.
