Haynes: Blazers Assistant Buck Williams' Contract Not Renewed

Chris Haynes of reports that the Blazers have not renewed or extended the one-year contract of assistant coach Buck Williams, leaving his future with the team up in the air.

Acting general manager Chad Buchanan says the team will not extend Williams' deal and will let the next head coach bring in his own crew.

"I just want to remain a Blazer some how," Williams said. "I spent a lot of time in Portland and love it here. But, I understand a new coach has the right to pick his own staff."

Whenever the new coach is hired, that individual could bring Williams and the other coaches back if he chooses to, but that is highly unlikely.

Williams has been on staff since July of 2010.
