Rich Cho

  1. Charlotte’s scouting database is better than yours. Way better.

    Jun 24, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    Rich Cho

    Bobcats GM Rich Cho comes at his job differently than the other 29 guys who have these gigs. Cho was an engineer for Boeing who left that to attend Pepperdine law school, then parlayed that into a job with the Sonics. One of his big projects with the Bobcats has been create a comprehensive player…

  2. There is support out there for Bobcats new coach Dunlap

    Jun 19, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Mike Dunlap

    In all the stories about the Charlotte Bobcats coaching search, we at PBT dutifully listed Mike Dunlap, assistant coach at St. Johns, among the guys interviewed. Like you, we thought that a courtesy interview because he knew somebody, he was not a guy on most people’s NBA radar. But he got the job. And while…

  3. Report: Trail Blazers to “pause” search for general manager

    Nov 16, 2011, 6:58 PM EDT

    Eventually, the Portland Trail Blazers will need a general manager to tell Paul Allen everything is great figure out how to rebuild this team and win fast. But with the lockout dragging on, that time is not now. The Blazers have already reset their search to replace Rich Cho once and now the search will…

  4. Portland tasked with fixing what isn’t broken

    Oct 13, 2011, 2:17 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Brandon Roy, Nicolas Batum, Rudy Fernandez, Gerald Wallace

    Things are going just fine for the Portland Trail Blazers these days: LaMarcus Aldridge made “the leap,” last season, Rich Cho stole Gerald Wallace out of Charlotte with a bargain trade package, Andre Miller was replaced with a younger facsimile, Brandon Roy has shown signs of life, and the roster is loaded with capable contributors.…

  5. Report: Trail Blazers to restart GM search from square one

    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,…

  6. Blazers searching Cho’s replacement as GM

    Sep 20, 2011, 7:10 PM EDT

    Rich Cho

    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…

  7. Blazers to interview Spurs’ Lindsay, Mullin for GM gig

    Sep 3, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Chris Mullin

    The Blazers are starting to get together a list of candidates for the vacant GM job. From Yahoo! Sports: Portland has also received permission to interview Spurs assistant GM Dennis Lindsey, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Lindsey has spoken to Blazers officials by phone, but no formal face-to-face has yet been scheduled, a source said.…

  8. Interim GM Buchanan out of Portland GM search

    Aug 18, 2011, 12:37 PM EDT

    chad-buchanan-draftjpg-07c7e7765e3aaa04_display_image

    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…

  9. 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…

  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. Blazers GM: Carmelo Anthony trade holding up other deals

    Feb 16, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Image (1) CAnthony_stares-thumb-250x140-17932.jpg for post 6271

    Teams are talking trades. Not really seriously, however. We told you the other day that meaningful trade chatter was down this season and tried to present a few reasons — fear of the unknown of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement and teams not taking on any new salary because of it for one. All the…

  14. The Trail Blazers have plans to start over

    Jan 29, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    It was inevitable, really. The promise held in the 2008 and 2009 seasons for the Portland Trail Blazers have vanished in a blur of surgical knives, press releases featuring the words “out for the season” and a crowd of players in tailored suits on the bench.  Joel Przybilla was the lucky one. He only hurt…

  15. Greg Oden still wants to “dominate”

    Jan 23, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    You’re going to read a lot more positive pieces about Greg Oden in the coming months. The poor guy’s a restricted free agent this summer and he and his agent have to try and put as positive a spin on his situation as possible. So while Oden in his two previous season-ending knee surgeries (geez,…

  16. Marcus Camby doesn’t want to be traded

    Dec 29, 2010, 8:48 AM EDT

    Camby_Nash

    Portland is very actively looking for trades — GM Rich Cho realizes that the old Roy/Oden plan is dead and it is time to restructure. Andre Miller is drawing a lot of interest and may well be moved. Marcus Camby also is on the trade block — except he’s not cool with that, according to…

  17. Report: Brandon Roy doesn’t like fit with Andre Miller

    Dec 17, 2010, 10:49 AM EDT

    BRoy_Celebrates

    Andre Miller is a classic point guard — a guy who wants the ball in his hands to create shots for himself and others, to set up the offense. Brandon Roy is part of a new breed of elite two guards — a guy who wants the ball in his hands to create shots for…

  18. What is next for Greg Oden?

    Nov 18, 2010, 9:51 AM EDT

    Image (1) goden_injury-thumb-250x166-18583.jpg for post 3769

    Friday, Greg Oden will have surgery on his knee. Again. Once again for a non-contact injury. This is a genuinely good person, a smart guy whose body continually betrays him. And that is sad. But we have to ask ourselves what is next? For him? For the Blazers? The team did not offer an extension…

  19. The Blazers, the Sixers, the Pistons, rebuilding and you

    Nov 14, 2010, 10:28 AM EDT

    iggy

    It sits there on your desk, staring at you. Just a big red button. It doesn’t implore you, it doesn’t call out to you, it’s just a button. But you can’t help but glance at it with the first few losses. Then more and more, you stare. Your mind is racing with what to do.…

  20. Brandon Roy has fluid drained from knee, to see specialist

    Nov 10, 2010, 9:08 AM EDT

    Tayshaun Prince, Brandon Roy

    Brandon Roy is not right. Ron Artest called it after defending him the other night. Roy conceded he had not been attacking as much, one of the best players in the Association at getting in the lane and drawing contact has been settling for more jumpers. He tried to play it off as part of…

  21. Rudy Fernandez to play in Madison Square Garden… but not as a Knick

    Oct 30, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    RFernandez-Jumper

    Rudy Fernandez finally gets to play a game in Madison Square Garden tonight. He’s wanted that, his agents have pushed for that all summer (pushed hard enough to get him fined, twice). Of course, they pushed for him to be a Knick, instead he comes in as part of the visiting Portland Trail Blazers. The…

  22. 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…

  23. Nate McMillan coaching for a new contract

    Sep 30, 2010, 11:30 PM EDT

    At the end of the season, Nate McMillan will be a free agent. But McMillan is handling his business a little different than recent high-profile payers — he is being quiet. Make no mistake, he wants a new deal in Portland, but he wants to prove he deserves it by taking the Blazers to new…

  24. Rudy Fernandez is excited to play in Portland now. Of course he is.

    Sep 21, 2010, 4:20 PM EDT

    After an entire summer of trying anything and everything to force his way out of Portland — with his agent stepping far enough over the line as to be fined by the league — Rudy Fernandez is changing his tone as camp approaches. Here are his comments in an interview with Spanish media outlet Marca,…

  25. Joel Przybilla likely out until November, December

    Sep 14, 2010, 8:01 PM EDT

    The optimistic reports that Joel Przybilla would be back for the season opener — which came from Przybilla himself — have proven to be, well, a little too optimistic. Portland General Manager Rich Cho told the Oregonian that November or December seems the more likely timeframe. Which still isn’t bad, the question is how will…
