Canzano: Timbers Owner Merritt Paulson As Possible Blazers Buyer?

71
John Canzano of The Oregonian floats Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson as a possible buyer of the Portland Trail Blazers. ------------------------------- I was asked to meet informally with a three-member team of local well-connected political strategists and public relations experts. People so influential and well placed they're typically busy getting initiatives passed and politicians elected. And what they told me floored me. They believe the Trail Blazers are for sale. They also believe the next NBA owner is right under our noses. ... So here it goes: Were you disappointed or thrilled when Allen announced he wasn't entertaining offers? When or if Allen does someday sell, what kind of owner would you want? And why hasn't Merritt Paulson crossed anyone's mind as the next Blazers owner? ... "I have more than enough on my hands right now," Paulson said. "I'm bullish on the Timbers and I'm not actively pursuing any other sports ownership possibilities at this time I'm totally focused on one thing." ------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
