    Larry Miller was quoted yesterday as saying "

    "Miller said the search for a permanent coach and general manager would begin after the season."

    Read more:

    GM has been open since Cho left and one of the best evaluators and coaches is out and available now "Jerry Sloan".  So my question is why wait?  If Paul Allen is really looking toward the future, then start today and get a GM and a coach for the future today.  Sign Jerry Sloan as possible GM and then get Terry Porter from Minnesota to get Rip City back on the Map instead of a door mat.

    Mr. Allen you gutted the franchise yesterday for the future (which in part I agree with (Felton & Crawford are big question marks, but maybe they will flourish under a new coach)).  The future is now and before us. 

    START TODAY, START NOW, SIGN JERRY SLOAN, GIVE HIM WHATEVER HE WANTS.  (Which in turn means you will have to give up control and let the Basketball People who know better return us to Blazermania and Rip City. 

    Mr. Allen, you did it in Seattle with Pete Carroll, now do it with Portland. 

    I am a fan of WES, the heart and soul of the Blazers.

    it would definitely be more attractive gm job if the team was looking to hire before the draft, but it makes more sense to wait until the offseason to hire a coach just so you can decide what direction you can go by what type of players you can get via draft or free agency. paul allen seems to know what he's doing right now. if it doesnt work then so be it, but at least there seems to be a plan.

    Waiting to get the leadership in place until you fumbled through free agency and the draft is the worst thing they can do.

    Get a compatible coach and GM together now.  Any top level coach should be able to deliver the remainder of this season as well or better than coach K. so you lose nothing there except money which there is no cap on for coaches.  

    Then go into the off-season with a coach and GM who know what kind of players they have, and can aggressively pursue free agents right away.  Then go into the draft with some very nice picks to round out the roster and fill any gaps.

    I kinda hope we have a GM before the draft at least.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
