Blazers Acting GM Chad Buchanan Issues Statement On Zig Ziegler

Portland Trail Blazers Acting GM Chad Buchanan has issued the following statement regarding comments made by sports kinesiologist Zig Ziegler through a team press release on Thursday afternoon.

"It's unfortunate that Mr. Ziegler would feel compelled to make such false claims and absurd statements. It is also unacceptable that anyone who claims to be concerned with the health and well-being of our athletes would disclose their personal information. Our medical and training staff is one of the longest tenured and most highly respected in the league. Mr. Ziegler's comments appear to be motivated by his own desire for personal gain, which is not only irresponsible but also unprofessional."

Ziegler discussed his testing of Blazers center Greg Oden and other Blazers players in multiple interviews with Blazersedge that produced this piece, published on Thursday morning, and in a post published on his blog last week.
