quotes Blazers President Larry Miller on the Tom Penn firing and whether the move might foreshadow potential job insecurity for Blazers General Manager Kevin Pritchard...
Blazers president Miller said a senior management group made the decision to fire Penn. "It wasn't just folks in Seattle; there were folks from Portland as well."
"This was an incident that was specific to Tom Penn." Miller on perceived animosity toward Pritchard: "That is absolutely being dreamed up."
If you were legitimately concerned about KP's job security, perhaps this helps calm your nerves.
