DJ broke the news in his diary and it's 100% true. Blazers head honcho Steve Patterson has stepped down from his duties. Here's DJ's report:
It seems like the Blazers and Patterson were waiting until after the trade deadline, which makes some sense. If Steve knew they weren't going to offer him another contract he'd see no need to stick around and be a lame duck for a couple months. I suppose just after the draft would be another logical time.
Feel free to add your reflections on the contributions/career of our former GM.
