The Portland Trail Blazers fired president/GM Neil Olshey.
– Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) December 3, 2021
At the beginning of November, Yahoo Sports Chris Haynes reported that the Olshey investigation was expanded to interview individuals outside of facility staff, including former and current employees. According to previous reports, Olshey allegedly created a hostile work environment, including complaints of intimidation and bullying.
Olshey has been a member of the organization since he took over as general manager in 2012 after nine years at the Los Angeles Clippers’ main office. In 2015, he was promoted to executive chairman of basketball.
Olshey’s firing comes weeks after Chairman Chris McGowan resigned from the organization amid an investigation into the work environment. Dewayne Haskins was promoted from executive vice president and chief commercial officer to president. Joe Cronin was promoted to interim general manager from his position as director of player personnel.
