Blazers Name Former Thunder Executive Rich Cho As New General Manager

The Blazers' long, weird general manager search is finally at it's end. According to Ben Golliver of SB Nation's Blazers blog Blazers Edge, the team has hired Rich Cho to be the team's new general manager.

The team confirmed the hire in a press release. 

Cho had been the assistant GM for the Oklahoma City Thunder, a rising young team that has been universally praised for their creativity in accumulating assets and young talent. Considering the circumstances surrounding former GM Kevin Pritchard's firing and the lingering threat of ownership meddling too much in personnel moves, the Blazers did extremely well to get someone as up-and-coming as Cho.
