Portland Trail Blazers Dump GM John Nash Prior To Draft Day

With the Portland Trail Blazers in a sticky situation over ownership, and the draft day quickly approaching this NBA franchise made a rather bold statement in dumping their General Manager John Nash. As the Portland Franchise will not renew his contract Kevin Pritchard, director of player personnel will act as Interim General Manager.Pritchard did have his contract renewed for the next season in a short news conference. Now it is up to this short-term gm to deal with the June 28th NBA draft. There is a possibility that he will end up taking over as general manager. Following an NBA season worst 21-61 record, the Portland Trail Blazers will have the fourth pick at the NBA draft.

Nash felt that there was not much in the way of court progressions yet there were many successes that he was privileged to be a part of.Nash's contract is set to expire on June 30th, considering the possibility of the team being sold, and the upcoming draft the ownership did not want to delay the decision to relieve Nash of his duties as GM.Albeit losing 19 of their last 20 games this season, the organization was hesitant on labeling Nash as the scapegoat for the team's very poor performance this year. The blame basically is going to be spread all around the organization, as they feel this is not time to be pointing fingers at one another for the shoddy season.At any rate Nash is out, and the team is now making preparations to weather the controversy surrounding the possible sale of the team, and where that will leave the organization in a whole.
