Wojnarowski: Blazers Scouting Director Chad Buchanan Leaves To Become Charlotte Assistant GM


Another change has come to the Blazers front office.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that Blazers Scouting Director and former interim General Manager Chad Buchanan has accepted an offer to become the assistant General Manager for the Charlotte Hornets.

Buchanan will once again be working for Rich Cho, who was the GM in Portland in 2010 until being fired less than a year later. Shortly, Michael Jordan hired Cho to run basketball operations for Charlotte.


Earlier this offseason, the Blazers decided to part ways with NBA Scouting Director Michael Born.

Free agency is underway and we have updates about the Blazers right here.
