Jason Filippi, a well-respected international scout, on the market after not being retained by #Blazers after 10 years of service, I'm told.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) September 25, 2014
This move follows the departure of Director of College Scouting Chad Buchanan this summer and Director of NBA Scouting Mike Born last spring.
Update: Haynes also Tweets that Blazers analytics manager Ben Falk has taken a vice-president's role with the Philadelphia 76'ers.
Ben Falk, #Blazers analytical manager, has left the organization, according to league source. There's been a lot of turnover over there.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) September 26, 2014
Erik Gunderson has a nice write-up on Falk at the Columbian's BlazersBanter Blog.
Update: The Oregonian's Joe Freeman shares the list of employees replacing the departed:
Zach Williams, who worked under Falk in the Blazers' analytics department, was promoted to replace Falk. And Alojz Milosavljevic, a respected international scout, replaced Filippi. Milosavljevic, who lives in Slovenia, has spent the last six seasons as an international scout with the Atlanta Hawks and has 14 years of experience working in the NBA.
Also, as a byproduct of the front office shuffling, Joe Cronin, the Blazers' self-made salary cap expert, was promoted to director of player personnel.
