Woelfel: Blazers Would Double Bucks GM John Hammond's Salary?

Milwaukee Bucks beat writer Gery Woelfel of the Journal Times confirmed in a radio interview with 1250 AM in Wisconsin that the Portland Trail Blazers' interest in Milwaukee Bucks GM is "legitimate." ---------------------------- John Hammond To Portland? "The Hammond situation is definitely a legitimate development. I was told that if Portland did go after him they would double his salary. If you're John Hammond, I would find that quite appealing." Shake up in Milwaukee coming? "Based on the conversations I've had, you just don't know what's going to happen. I would imagine the Bucks are going to make some major moves. Scott Skiles, John Hammond, I think they're both under the gun at this point." Would Hammond bring director of scouting Billy McKinney and assistant GM Jeff Weltman to Portland? "Those guys are joined at the hip. Billy McKinney and John Hammond grew up together in Illinois. They've been best of friends since they were kids. So that's a given. Weltman has been with John for the last five or six years so I can definitely see that as a scenario." ---------------------------- Hammond was linked to the Blazers earlier this week. Woelfel previously reported that Hammond and Bucks coach Scott Skiles could be on the chopping block given Milwaukee's disappointing season.
