The revolving door position that is known as the General Manager of the Portland Trail Blazers opened up again this past week. Rich Cho was let go after less than one year on the job. Unlike last year, with the firing of Kevin Pritchard, this move was not expected by many and certainly not this soon.
During Cho's brief tenure, perhaps the best remembered move is the trade that brought Gerald Wallace to Portland in exchange for essentially bench players and future draft picks. But apparently even a trade of that caliber was not enough to appease Paul Allen, who, despite his deep pockets, has become one of the scariest NBA owners to work for.
With that being said, the Trail Blazers organization is a proud one with a lot of history therefore a lot of high profile candidates are expected to be interviewed for the position.
Here we'll look at a few of the more commonly mentioned ones, as well as others which may have an outside shot.
