Freeman: Chad Buchanan Out Of Blazers GM Running

30
Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports that Portland Trail Blazers Acting GM Chad Buchanan won't get the full title and responsibilities after all... --------------------- Interim GM Chad Buchanan is no longer a candidate to become Blazers GM permanently. Blazers President Larry Miller says the Blazers are looking for a candidate with GM experience or with extended time as a No. 2. Buchanan will remain with team and both he and Miller said they would like him to be a part of organization no matter who is hired as GM. Buchanan will help Miller with his GM search and has already suggested "a couple" candidates. Miller told Buchanan the news Friday and Buchanan, who replaced the fired Rich Cho on May 23, handled it in stride."They'd like someone with more experience. I totally understand that," Buchanan said. "I wasn't shocked." --------------------- With Buchanan out of the mix, there are no known candidates at this time. I posted some brief thoughts here. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
