Statement from Blazers owner Allen
The Trail Blazers made a change in the vice president of basketball operations position and that’s all. Decisions like this are made at the top levels of Blazer management, and are not made unless we have good reason, have worked through the issues involved, and we feel we should make an immediate change.
We are not going to make any more long-term decisions today. When the season ends we will evaluate how best to move the Trail Blazers forward. That’s not different than the way we have operated for the past 21 seasons.
I support everyone who works for me, including Kevin Pritchard, and that’s why he’s our general manager. We all have the same goal — to bring another NBA Championship to the great fans of Portland.
