Trail Blazers Fire Neil Olshey Following Investigation Into Workplace Misconduct

PORTLAND, Ore. (December 3, 2021) – The Portland Trail Blazers are committed to building an organization that positively impacts our colleagues, communities and the world in which we live and play.  

Following the conclusion of the independent review of concerns and complaints around our workplace environment at the practice facility, the Portland Trail Blazers organization has decided to terminate General Manager and President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey, effective immediately due to violations of the Portland Trail Blazers’ Code of Conduct. Out of respect for those who candidly participated in that privileged investigation, we will not release or discuss it. We are confident that these changes will help build a more positive and respectful working environment. Joe Cronin has been promoted to interim General Manager while the organization’s leadership conducts a search for a permanent replacement.
