The recent reports concerning the Kevin Pritchard Saga differ wildly in what they claim, except for two important points:
- Kevin Pritchard's tenure with the Trail Blazers is not going to last much longer.
- As of tonight, however, he's still an employee of the Trail Blazers.
Together, these two points suggest an obvious, three letter question: WHY? (There's another three letter acronym that starts with W that works as well, but its use is verboten here...)
And thus, tonight's poll question: Given all that has gone down in the press, why IS Pritchard still with the team? The usual way these things are handled is for one side to swing the axe, or the other to hand in a letter--and get it over with quick. Dragging it out for months Looks Bad.
Given all that's gone down, why is Kevin Pritchard still a Trail Blazers' employee?

KP and the team are in the middle of negotiations--either for the terms of his departure, or possibly for a contract extension. (21 votes)
KP's departure has already been arranged, and he will depart on a future date which has already been agreed to. In the meantime, no comment. (57 votes)
He's already been axed--it just hasn't been announced yet. (8 votes)
He's toast, but the Blazers want to keep his assistants around before greasing him officially. (18 votes)
He's toast, but the Blazers don't want him helping some other team on draft day--and are waiting until after the draft to let him go. (58 votes)
Paul Allen doesn't want to pay him, and is trying to humiliate him into quitting (for financial reasons). (14 votes)
Same as above, but not for money--KP did something to REALLY tick off Paul, and it's personal. (28 votes)
Something else, please explain. (7 votes)
