    when Dwight Jaynes is already suggesting a replacement for Olshey, it doesn't look like Olshey will be around much longer

    Did you guys hear Quick on Issac and Suke today..

    Oh boy he said there’s 1 guy on the team that might be causing problems who hasn’t bought in. Only clue he gave was it wasn’t Nurk

    Those were my guesses too but based on the interview I’m thinking Roco because he did mention Cj does seem engaged in huddles and communicating with teammates during the timeouts and what have you

    So their chief qualification is to not get fired or find a better job during all the bullshit of the Olshey era? Fuck that.

    I prefer a GM who is opportunistic, clever, socially adept, analytical and above all ambitious. These guys are basically lichen who latched on to a good boulder.

    I'd like to get Danny Ainge in a Jerry West-like consulting role, where he just strategizes behind the scenes while somebody like Brent Barry is the face of the management side of the franchise as the official GM. (Although TBH, I'd prefer a GM to be a minority. There are so many white guys in management jobs in the NBA.)

    Ainge had a heart attack about a year ago I think, and also has ADHD. At this stage maybe he'd find that kind of role intriguing?

    who gives a flying shit what Jason Quick has to say, the guy just stirs up shit for attention, and looked it worked because now you're trying to play investigator on who it could be. Fuck Jason Quick and John Canzano. We should really try to push them out the door after Neil goes.

    I heard someone suggest Tayshaun Prince as a possible Olshey replacement. Said he's basically doing a lot of the GM work in Memphis. Given his connection with Billups, that could be a natural fit.

    But we have long time respected professionals calling in to radio shows talking about what a shitty person Neil is and how toxic of an environment he has always created.

    That's not the same as what you're describing.

    Cronin is well respected as a capologist. Don't know much about the other two. People seem to speak highly of Banks.

    That does sound intriguing. But if we're going with defensive-minded small forwards, I'm still hoping for Shane Battier...

    I dont disagree. Was merely pointing out guys with experience. Obviously assistant gms aren't the only guys in the pool

    Intriguing. I like that he has a connection with Chauncey and Memphis has been knocking their draft picks out of the park lately.

    maybe the new GM won't trade away so many picks.

    Is that supposed to be a criticism of Neil? Cuz if anything, i wish he was more aggressive in using picks for difference makers. He was too protective of them until the Roco trade

    I was basing it on you saying how the Grizzlies have had a good slew of picks, well, if the Blazers were to get Tayshaun, it's because of Olshey's trading of picks, they're kind of limited on it for a year or 3 .
