Blazers COO Sarah Mensah Denies Involvement In GM Search

24

Portland Trail Blazers COO Sarah Mensah has opened a Twitter account and she's off to a feisty start, noting on Saturday that she is not involved in the team's search for a new GM. --------------------------- Oh, one thing I’d like to do is clarify an item John Canzano recently reported inaccurately; I have nothing to do with our GM search. --------------------------- The report she's referring to, by John Canzano of The Oregonian, can be read here. Mensah heads up the team's business operations, reporting to president Larry Miller, and has worked for the Blazers since 1993. Update: Canzano has responded on Twitter. --------------------------- And yet you declined an opportunity to make same statement pre-report? Funny but Sarah Mensah knew exactly what I was reporting... Why suddenly worried now? The distancing at One Center Court begins... just do smart things, make a solid hire already and stop worrying about job security. --------------------------- Canzano also addressed her directly: "Probably worth getting more involved with Larry on this. He's on the right track if only the Paul Allen circle would stand down." -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
