    What was long rumored and expected is now official. David Morway has resigned as the general manager of the Indiana Pacers and is leaving the organization, the team announced Tuesday. This is one of those “resign or we will can you” resignations, just so we’re clear. This clears the way for Kevin Pritchard, the former…

  2. You can go home again: Donnie Walsh hired by Pacers

    Jun 26, 2012, 2:21 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    Donnie Walsh was the long-time CEO of the Indiana Pacers who took a few years off to bail the New York Knicks out of their Isiah Thomas hole. They rewarded him for that by shoving him aside (over differences about the Carmelo Anthony deal), stripping him of his power and making him a consultant. Now,…

    Former NBA player Bird attends premiere of Magic Bird in New York

    When Larry Bird was retained as President of Basketball Operations for the Pacers, there was an interesting wrinkle. Kevin Pritchard, not longer-tenured David Morway, was tapped for the GM position under Bird. It was thought that was because Morway, having interviewed for vacant positions around the league, was simply headed elsewhere. Turns out that’s true,…

    May 24, 2012, 6:13 PM EDT

    Mitch Kupchak

    We all had our laugh, time to get serious about the Orlando Magic general manager search. How about this for a start, from Ken Berger at CBSSports.com — Mitch Kupchak of the Lakers.

    Utah Jazz v Golden State Warriors

    We welcome with open arms our first real trade rumor of the post-lockout era. We’ve missed you guys. Jazz forward Paul Millsap is available, according to a story in the Indy Star and backed up by John Hollinger of ESPN.

    At some point, the Portland Trail Blazers are going to need a general manager. And if that time is sooner rather than later, well, they are in trouble. More than four months after the Trail Blazers started their search for a new general manager after firing Rich Cho, after interviews with at least four candidates,…

  8. Interim GM Buchanan out of Portland GM search

    Aug 18, 2011, 12:37 PM EDT

    After canning two very well respected general managers — Kevin Pritchard and Rich Cho — the Blazers have decided the guy with the interim tag doesn’t get to keep the job, either. Because we all know that more front office turnover is the most direct path to winning. Chad Buchanan is the guy doing the…

    Someday the Toronto Raptors are going to hire a GM. That day is not in the near future, but the process is slowly grinding forward. Not that there is any real pressure due to the lockout. Apparently they have got some candidates in mind to join Bryan Colangelo running the Raptors, and eventually they will…

    Larry Bird didn’t sound like a guy who wanted to hang around much longer, the Indiana Pacers were about to be a team in transition in the front office. It sounds like they found their guy, according to a tweet from Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star. The Pacers are in the process of hiring…

  11. Pritchard talks Paul Allen, choosing Oden over Durant

    Jul 6, 2011, 3:09 PM EDT

    kevin-pritchard-jazz-game_display_image

    Kevin Pritchard was the hottest general manager in the league, the guy who changed the culture in Portland from the “Jail Blazers” to a young team on the rise. Then he got fired. Abruptly. Reportedly because owner Paul Allen and his tight circle didn’t like Prichard and the credit he was getting for turning around…

  12. Blazers were aware of Roy’s knee issues when they signed him to a max contract

    Jul 2, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Former GM Kevin Pritchard went on John Canzano’s radio show in Portland to talk about his time and experience with the Blazers before he was (randomly) fired, and his thoughts on the league going forward. During the interview, Pritchard left an interesting bit of information out there regarding the decision to grant Brandon Roy his…

    Don’t expect the Portland Trail Blazers to move fast — they said they were going to take their time finding a new GM to replace Rich Cho — but apparently they have one name on their list already. Danny Ferry, the former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager who before and after that has worked with the…

  14. Blazers defend firing of GM Cho, say it was chemistry

    May 24, 2011, 8:26 AM EDT

    Rich Cho

    For the second time in a year, the Portland Trail Blazers have fired a general manager. For the second time in a year it’s because of a personality clash with the owner Paul Allen and upper management. Because newly fired Rich Cho had a good reputation around the league — he had been the No.…

  15. Blazers surprisingly release GM Rich Cho after one year

    May 23, 2011, 4:26 PM EDT

    Rich Cho

    In a move that came as a surprise around the NBA, general manager Rich Cho was released after one season, the team announced Monday. College scouting director Chad Buchanan will take over as the interim GM. “The fit between Rich and our team simply wasn’t right,” said Trail Blazers President Larry Miller said in a…

  16. To win big, does a team need to lose big first?

    Mar 5, 2011, 7:11 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    It’s tough spot to be — right in the middle of the NBA pack. If you are the Indiana Pacers right now, or the Memphis Grizzlies, or a host of other teams, you are in a difficult spot. You’re good, probably good enough to make the playoffs but not really be a top three seed.…

  17. Jerryd Bayless’ career undergoes a corrective measure

    Oct 24, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Portland vs. Dallas

    In 2008 the Portland Trailblazers drafted Jerryd Bayless with the eleventh pick in the draft. It was, at the time, considered to be a moderate reach, but some described it as a “best player available” type move. What was curious was that the Blazers already had All-Star Brandon Roy at shooting guard. They had drafted…

  18. The new Portland GM doesn't seem like the hesitant type

    Jul 31, 2010, 9:32 PM EDT

    New Portland GM Rich Cho is settling in nicely. He’s got himself a plan, a philosophy, and even a restaurant with the kinds of options he wants! And you can learn all about it from Jason Quick of the Oregonian! Quick has your quintessential “Get to know your new GM who replaces your favorite GM…

  19. Rich Cho named general manager for Portland

    Jul 19, 2010, 1:05 PM EDT

    Portland is apparently staying with the “guys who know how to build teams from the ground up” model. Rich Cho is the new Portland general manager, a text to media just confirmed. Blazers Edge (a very good and very well connected Portland blog) first broke the story. This would be a good hire for Portland,…

  20. Hornets looking at more than Pritchard to fill GM spot

    Jul 16, 2010, 6:02 PM EDT

    Kevin Pritchard appears to be the front-runner to get the New Orleans Hornets job. For a couple of good reasons — he has a relationship from Portland with just-hired coach Monty Williams from Portland, and the Hornets need to make an impressive hire to show to Chris Paul they are serious about being a winner.…

  21. Hornets reach out to Kevin Pritchard to talk about GM job

    Jul 15, 2010, 6:24 PM EDT

    There is a buzz around New Orleans Hornets games at the Summer League in Las Vegas suddenly.

The first guy to get a shot seems to be just-fired Kevin Pritchard…

  22. Report: Knicks president Donnie Walsh may retire

    Jul 9, 2010, 9:54 AM EDT

    UPDATE 9:54 am: It didn’t take long, and Walsh responded by saying the reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated. From Alan Hahn at Newsday: “I’m sure there are guys around me that are predicting my death, right? I’m not there yet.” 9:33 am: Donnie Walsh spent the last two years digging the Knicks…

    Jul 7, 2010, 1:19 AM EDT

    The man at the helm when Portland drafted one of the best young cores in basketball, then dumped because the people above him thought he was taking too much credit, is now on the radar in New Jersey. Kevin Prichard will interview for the New Jersey Nets job, according to David Aldridge at NBA.com. He…

  24. Kevin Pritchard says goodbye to Portland

    Jun 27, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    “The man was just a GM.” I’m sure that’s what representatives of the Portland Trail Blazers’ ownership group are telling themselves this morning. He was just a GM. He didn’t mean as much as a player, or a coach. He was just a guy signing paperwork and making phone calls.  But Kevin Pritchard’s dismissal at…

  25. Blazers considering Ferry for GM position

    Jun 26, 2010, 11:58 PM EDT

    The Portland Trail Blazers fired GM Kevin Pritchard Thursday night after three years in which he led the Blazers from utter disaster to one of the most promising core of players in the league. He was fired despite being known for “winning” nearly ever transaction he was involved in and being one step ahead of…
