Eggers: Former GM Pritchard Replies To Owner Allen's Statements

Last week, Portland Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen told a small group of media members at the Rose Garden that former GM Kevin Pritchard asked to be fired "multiple times" on the night of the 2010 NBA Draft. Kerry Eggers of the Portland Tribune asked Pritchard for his side of the story. ------------------------------- Like all Blazer employees who are fired, Pritchard was forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement in order to receive severance pay. "It was a private conversation," is what Pritchard would say Monday when I reached him via telephone in Florida, where he was with family for the holidays. "It’s between me and Mr. Allen." ... "I wouldn’t trade my time with the Blazers for anything in the world," he said. "The best 7 1/2 years of my life. Professionally, I grew up there, and hopefully I’ll continue to grow." ------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
