David Griffin, Former Suns Executive, Drawing Interest In Portland

While David Griffin, Steve Kerr’s number two man, decided to remove himself from the Suns search for a new general manager, Jason Quick of The Oregonian writes that Griffin’s name has popped up in Portland, where the Blazers are looking to find Kevin Pritchard’s replacement.

“There have been some teams that have shown interest and I’m flattered any time my name comes up,‘’ Griffin said. "Portland achieved so much last season despite all the injuries, and their coaching and leadership is impressive. Anybody would be excited to be involved with that.’’

The approach of hiring a No. 2 in a top front office job, instead of a big-name general manager, is consistent with the approach taken recently by Allen in hiring 38-year-old John Schneider to be the Seahawks general manager. Schneider was the director of football operations for Green Bay prior to Seattle.
