Wojnarowski: Blazers Using Head Hunters To Find Kevin Pritchard's Replacement

128
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports writes... ------------------------------ The Portland Trail Blazers have empowered a private headhunting firm to research and reach out to potential general manager candidates, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. ... At least two current NBA front-office executives have been targeted, sources confirmed, and the firm has also made several fact-finding calls about Oklahoma City Thunder GM Sam Presti. ... Pritchard is still preparing for the June draft and making cursory calls on potential trades. Agents dealing with him say he’s toned down his verbiage, no longer making bold proclamations about his ability to buy draft picks and move up to snare their clients. It’s clear he can do little, if anything, without the approval of his superiors. ------------------------------ Pritchard still has't been evaluated. He established a fall-back plan with the board membership of a technology company. His house recently started being shopped. And now this. I think the reaction to anticipate and scrutinize closely here is Pritchard's, not the organization's. I would resign in that situation, wouldn't you? -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
