Olshey Wants to get Blazers Back on Track
There will be no easing into the job for new Trail Blazers general manager Neil Olshey.
First, Portland has four picks in the NBA draft, just more than three weeks away. Then there’s free agency, which heats up in July.
The Blazers also need to hire a new coach, and they’d like to re-sign French forward Nicolas Batum, a restricted free agent.
“I like working under pressure. I like working on deadlines,” Olshey said Tuesday when he was introduced as Portland’s new GM. “I think we’re going to put our head down and move forward, and I think when we put our heads up in July after summer league, we’ll be in great position.”
