Portland Trailblazers Reportedly Interested in Lakers’ GM Mitch Kupchak

by April 20, 2012

The Blazers’ search for a new general manager is well underway, and they reportedly want to interview the Lakers’ Mitch Kupchak. Per the Oregonian: “Blazers president Larry Miller said the Blazers have not reached out to the Lakers to get permission to speak with Kupchak. But Miller also did not deny that the Blazers might have interest in the Lakers’ general manager. ‘Maybe,’ Miller said. ‘I don’t want to get into who’s on our list, not on our list. But we have not reached out to anyone with the Lakers to get permission. If that has been reported, that is not true.’ Does Miller plan to seek permission? ‘I can’t answer that one,’ Miller said. Kupchak is the third candidate to surface as a potential target, joining former Phoenix Suns general manager Steve Kerr and agent Noah Croom.”
