From CBS’ Ben Golliver:
PORTLAND, Ore. — More than 100 days after “parting ways” with former GM Rich Cho weeks before the 2011 NBA Draft, the PortlandTrail Blazers have yet to hire Cho’s full-time replacement.
Blazers president Larry Miller did finally confirm that the GM search process has progressed in a telephone interview with CBSSports.com on Monday.
“We have talked to and interviewed some candidates,” Miller said. “I’m not going to mention any names but we have interviewed candidates.”
Yahoo Sports has reported that the Blazers are eying Oklahoma CityThunder executive Troy Weaver, San Antonio Spurs executive Dennis Lindsey and former Golden State Warriors executive Chris Mullin, while ESPN.com added Cleveland Cavaliers executive David Griffin and Los Angeles Clippers executive Neil Olshey to the list.
The Blazers’ front office has been a soap opera in recent years — hopefully the Blazers can find someone to hold down the GM job successfully this off-season and spare Blazer fans from any future front-office drama.
