- Darius just checked into the game tonight. One more and the money is back on the Blazers books.
- According to Brian Hendrickson, Kevin Pritchard wouldn't really confirm or deny the Yahoo report regarding whether the Blazers submitted a claim for Darius Miles off waivers.
"We looked at a lot of different options. It just wasn't a viable option for us."
Pritchard went on to say that the team poured over several different approaches to the situation in order to protect its cap space and luxury tax situation before sending out their now infamous e-mail, though he did not go into any specifics.
So I pressed Pritchard and asked him whether he could specifically deny that the team attempted at any point to submit a claim for Miles. His response:
"I can't say that. All I can say is it wasn't a viable option."
The league will not fine the Blazers for Larry Miller's Memo.
