The Portland Trail Blazers have named Neil Olshey as the team's general manager.

"Neil is someone we've had on our radar for quite a while," said Larry Miller. "Over the past two seasons he has demonstrated success in constructing a roster, managing salary cap and evaluating player talent. We feel very fortunate to have him in Portland and are thrilled about what this means for the future."

Olshey had been working on a month-to-month agreement with the Clippers and had recently reached a tentative agreement on a new deal.
