Blazers ‘Not looking for aging veterans’
According to (Blazers GM Neil) Olshey, he wants to put all of his efforts into gathering all the information necessary for the upcoming draft, then the next step would be contacting current Trail Blazer players, and finally focusing on the head coach position and that will likely be during the free agency period.
Speaking of the free agency period, Steve Nash to Portland may not be an option with Olshey at the helm. He’s not interesting in bringing in veterans for momentary success.
“I want to make it clear, we’re not looking for quick fixes,” Olshey said. “We’re not looking for aging veterans that can slide us into the eighth spot and we’re right back here a year from now trying to figure out what to do.”
