The Portland Trail Blazers have signed General Manager Neil Olshey to a multi-year extension, the team announced Thursday. They also promoted him to President of Basketball Operations.

While the terms of the deal were not disclosed in the official release, the extension is expected to be for three more years.

"This extension is a validation of the efforts of the entire Trail Blazers front office and an endorsement of the level of commitment expected of us by our owner Paul Allen," said Olshey in the release.

Olshey became the 10th General Manager in team history in 2012.

"Our team has made great strides under Neil’s leadership, and I am excited to extend his contract," said Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen in the release.
