Portland Trail Blazers Re-Open GM Search
And that’s why the biggest news of the day came well before Tuesday’s tipoff, the type of news needed to take the first step toward re-establishing the Rose Garden as the place to be: Team president Larry Miller said the team has reopened its search for a general manager.
Go ahead, get your jokes in. What’s the rush, right? It’s only been 308 days since Rich Cho was fired.
But I have a feeling there is a reason why the search has lingered for nearly a year.
I wonder if the Blazers are waiting on Steve Kerr.
Kerr was pursued by the Blazers after Cho was fired. But the former Phoenix general manager and current TNT TV analyst said he wanted to spend time with his family, particularly his kids. One of his sons, Nick, has since graduated, and is now playing for the University of San Diego. He has two other teenage children.
