Ferry has serious interest in GM position, source says
Danny Ferry has serious interest in the Portland Trail Blazers’ general manager position, a source close to Ferry informed The Columbian.
The source has direct knowledge of Ferry’s situation, but is not authorized to publicly comment.
Ferry was GM in Cleveland from 2005 until June 4, 2010, when he chose not re-sign with the Cavaliers. The former Duke standout is under contract with Cleveland through July 1.
The Columbian reported that Ferry had been contacted by search firm Spencer Stuart about the Blazers’ GM job while former Portland GM Kevin Pritchard still held the title. Pritchard was fired last Thursday about an hour before the start of the 2010 NBA Draft.
Reached by phone last Wednesday, Ferry said he could not comment about the position and did not want to be involved in any related discussion because he was still under contract with the Cavs.
