With Owner Paul Allen and General Manager Kevin Pritchard unavailable, the scouts stepped up to discuss the team's picks, President Larry Miller explained the team's decision to relieve Kevin Pritchard of his duties and Nate McMillan talked about the draft picks as well as Kevin Pritchard's departure.

Chad Buchanan: Blazers Head of College Scouting.  Emotionally drained, exhausted, still focused.

Mike Born, Director of Pro Scouting.  Facing a new reality, sad to see a long time friend go, proud of what the process produced tonight.

Nate McMillan, Head Coach, Portland Trail Blazers.  Emotionless, rock solid, steady, doing what needs to be done.

Larry Miller, President, Portland Trail Blazers.  Honestly, I couldn't tell you what was funny about today.  He was laughing at the thought that he wants to be General Manager.  No one else was laughing.
