Trail Blazers fire GM and President of Basketball Operations, Neil Olshey

Neil Olshey fired

The Portland Trail Blazers have fired their General Manager/President of Basketball Operations, Neil Olshey. He was fired following complaints and an investigation into workplace misconduct. The complaints have been classified as intimidation and bullying.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news via Twitter on Friday.

Olshey had been with the Trail Blazers’ front office for almost a decade, becoming the general manager in 2012. Under Olshey, the Blazers had made the playoffs eight times, all in consecutive seasons. Their peak came in 2018-2019, in which Portland made the Western Conference Finals.

Joe Cronin has been promoted to interim General Manager after Olshey’s firing. The team currently sits in ninth place, with a record of 11-12.
