Neil Olshey agrees to multi-year extension with Blazers
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Portland Trail Blazers have agreed to a multi-year contract extension with President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey.
The team did not disclose terms of the deal, which runs through the 2020-21 season.
Olshey was named general manager in 2012 and promoted to his current positon in 2015. His first year he was involved in the draft that landed guard Damian Lillard and the team’s hiring of head coach Terry Stotts. The next year Portland drafted CJ McCollum.
Portland has been to the playoffs in each of the last four seasons.
“Neil has done an excellent job improving our team and getting us into the playoffs. With our young and improving roster, I expect our franchise to keep improving,” Blazers owner Paul Allen said. “Continuity in the front office is important as we continue to grow, and this extension shows the confidence we have in Neil’s leadership.”
