Portland Trail Blazers

  1. Portland undecided on Miller option

    Jun 16, 2011, 6:43 PM EDT

    MILLER_ANDRE

    The Oregonian’s Mike Tokito had this interesting tidbit about Andre Miller after attending press conference with interim Blazers GM Chad Buchanan: Buchanan was non-committal about the Blazers’ team option on point guard Andre Miller. The Blazers hold a $7.8 million option for Miller for next season, but have yet to exercise it. The 35-year old…

  2. Oden will get contract, but may not play until January

    Jun 16, 2011, 12:49 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    It sounds more and more like the Portland Trail Blazers may offer an $8.8 million qualifying offer to Greg Oden so they can keep him. Yes, the Greg Oden who has flashed talent but played in only one quarter of the team’s games the past four seasons due to some serious knee issues. (Possibly, the…

  3. Former Blazers GM Cho takes same job with Bobcats

    Jun 14, 2011, 1:51 AM EDT

    Rich Cho

    Very smart hire by the Charlotte Bobcats. Rich Cho — who the Blazers surprisingly let go last month because of “chemistry issues” with owner Paul Allen (which seems to happen to a lot of GMs) — has been hired by the Charlotte Bobcats as GM, the team announced late Monday night (via IamaGM.com). It was…

  4. Blazers considering giving Oden qualifying offer

    Jun 13, 2011, 7:28 PM EDT

    ODEN_GREG

    According to The Oregonian’s Joe Freeman, the Blazers declined to offer center Greg Oden an $8.8 million qualifying offer today, which was the first day the Blazers had the opportunity to do so. The Blazers have until June 30th to extend Oden the offer — according to Freeman, indications are that the Blazers plan to…

  5. Video: Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala know each other well

    Sixers Happy Family Time

    Jimmy Kimmel has been a constant source of NBA-related entertainment this post-season, and the fun continued on his show last night. Kimmel invited LaMarcus Aldridge and Greg Oden of the Portland Trail Blazers and Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala on his show to play the “Team-Mating Game,” an NBA version of “The Newlywed Game” (or,…

  6. Report: Blazers want to trade up in draft for Kemba Walker

    Jun 3, 2011, 10:19 AM EDT

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Butler v UConn

    Portland needs to tweak its roster. There are good players — LaMarcus Aldridge, Gerald Wallace — but the backcourt can no longer count on Brandon Roy to lead every night. The Blazers are looking to make a tweak in the draft by getting Connecticut point guard Kemba Walker, who led his team to the national…

  7. Expect Roy to be back with Blazers. Playing all 82… we’ll see

    Jun 2, 2011, 8:29 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Chad Buchanan got thrust into the Portland general managers job without much if any warning. Without much time to plan or think about it. Rich Cho was unexpectedly out, he was in. But this is his time of year, he’s a scout so the draft is his thing. He’s in his comfort zone with that,…

  8. Rick Adelman wouldn’t mind being Trail Blazers GM

    May 30, 2011, 11:06 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Apparently, Rick Adelman has no interest in long-term job security. We told you before that long time coach Rick Adelman has interest in moving into a front office job. On Sunday he expressed interest specifically in doing that for Portland, a team that has fired two respected general managers in 10 months. That is what…

  9. Report: Blazers may push Brandon Roy to retire

    May 27, 2011, 10:19 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Brandon Roy should have sat out all of this season to rest his tired knees. Just like he should not have pushed himself so hard the previous season to come back from surgery for the playoffs. But that is not how Roy is wired, he is as fierce a competitor as the NBA has right…

  10. Report: Blazers considering Danny Ferry as new GM

    May 25, 2011, 1:29 PM EDT

    danny-ferry-apjpg-93fe194051c36202_large

    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…

  11. 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.…

  12. 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…

  13. Nate McMillian thinks Portland’s roster could use some changes

    May 17, 2011, 5:32 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The Portland Trail Blazers have been in “stockpile assets” mode for a couple of years now. They have managed to accumulate a lot of fine players, and haven’t really made a disastrous move. More importantly, they somehow managed to field a playoff team with two guys who should be their franchise players almost completely hobbled…

  14. Brandon Roy wants to be a starter again for Portland

    May 2, 2011, 10:19 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    There is no “Sixth Man of the Playoffs” award, but if there were Brandon Roy would be the frontrunner. He was a game changer for the Trail Blazers off the pine, especially in Game 4 when he had a quarter for the ages that pulled his struggling team up and evened the series (even if…

  15. NBA Playoffs: Portland’s passion no match for Dallas execution

    Apr 29, 2011, 3:37 AM EDT

    Trail Blazers Wallace celebrates against Mavericks during NBA playoff game in Portland, Oregon.

    Like Brandon Roy before him, Portland’s Gerald Wallace gave it everything he could on Thursday night. There was the 9-0 run by himself at the start, the playing through back pain, the great fourth quarter effort that culminated in 32 points (on 17 shots). But as it has been for most of this series, even…

  16. When asked about thrown item, Mark Cuban throws expletives

    Apr 28, 2011, 6:44 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    Note to self: Remember to ask Mark Cuban new questions. Remember back at Game 3 of the Portland/Dallas series when Mavericks owner Mark Cuban got hit with a projectile thrown from the stands by a Blazers fan? And we all smiled and moved on. Well the Portland Tribune decided there should be more information on…

  17. Late game screen adds some bad blood to Dallas, Portland series

    Apr 26, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    Mavericks' Chandler gestures towards an official as Trail Blazers' Camby runs up court during their NBA Western Conference playoff game in Dallas

    Now, just to add to the big comebacks and pressure shot in a fun series, we have some real bad blood between Dallas and Portland. It stems from this play at the end of Dallas’ win to take a 3-2 series. With just 18 seconds left in a nine-point game, you usually see the defenders…

  18. NBA Playoffs: No comeback this time, Dallas gets defensive in win

    Apr 25, 2011, 11:56 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dallas has basically won seven of the last eight quarters against Portland. The series is 3-2 and headed back to Portland because of Brandon Roy’s epic fourth quarter Saturday (which John Hollinger of ESPN said so well was not Roy’s best quarter it was anyone’s best quarter). Monday night there was no Roy making plays…

  19. NBA Playoffs: Will the Mavs come undone?

    Apr 25, 2011, 5:27 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    There aren’t many choke job opportunities in your every day life. Think about it. You can say someone choked on that stage, but they never go through 80% of speech or performance and then just when the crowd is preparing to give them a standing ovation trip on a banana peel or make a racist…

  20. Video: Watch Brandon Roy’s amazing fourth quarter

    Apr 24, 2011, 8:13 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Enjoy the moment. Don’t think about what Brandon Roy will be or do next season. Don’t think about his knees. Don’t think about how all that robbed us of many more nights like this. Bask in the glory of the playoffs. Of one man’s mind over matter. Of Brandon Roy dropping 18 fourth-quarter points on…

  21. NBA Playoffs: Brandon Roy and the Rose Garden Time Machine

    Apr 23, 2011, 8:28 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Portland 84 Dallas 82. You could not have written it better. Well, maybe if it was Game 7. But then it would be in Dallas and that’s a whole different result. In sports, a lot of us have become repulsed by cliches, by ridiculous preconceived storylines forced down our throats. But there is still something…

  22. NBA Playoffs: Portland’s season on line again Saturday

    Apr 23, 2011, 3:47 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers guard Matthews celebrates three-point shot against Dallas Mavericks in Portland

    Portland pretty much knew the game plan they had to pull off from Game 1 — force turnovers, get some transition points, work the offense inside out through LaMarcus Aldridge, knock down jumpers. For the first two games, it was Dallas taking care of the basketball and knocking down jumpers, Plus in crunch time they…

  23. Blazer fan throws projectile, hits Mark Cuban with it

    Apr 22, 2011, 9:50 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Three

    Come on Portland, this is why we love Mark Cuban. You want another faceless owner who sits in a luxury box with his friends and views the team as an investment? We need passionate, committed owners. Ones willing to sit with the fans and tell them what is on their mind. Cuban was sitting near…

  24. NBA Playoffs: Aggressive Trail Blazers make a series out of it

    Apr 22, 2011, 3:30 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Three

    Portland just came out aggressive. Finally. Sometimes it’s not about the Xs and Os, it’s about energy and execution. Portland had that in the Rose Garden. Credit the home crowd (always one of the best in the league). Credit desperation. Credit Everclear. (The band, not the drink.) Whatever it was Portland came out far more…

  25. NBA Playoffs: Blazers have to walk fine line of emotions vs. Mavs in Game 3

    Apr 21, 2011, 6:36 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks - Game Two

    Brandon Roy‘s upset. Brandon Roy’s sorry. Brandon Roy’s a role player. There’s a lot going on, emotionally, in Rip City, as there always is. But if the Blazers want to get back into this thing and prevent Dallas from putting distance between themselves and Portland, Nate McMillan’s crew is going to have to walk a…
