(NEW YORK) -- Neil Olshey was all but set to remain with the Los Angeles Clippers front office, but at the last minute, he decided to become the general manager for the Portland Trail Blazers instead.
This past Friday, the Clippers announced that they had come to a principle agreement with Olshey. Despite the announcement, over the weekend the Trail Blazers made an offer to Olshey and he accepted.
"This is not about what the Clippers did wrong. It's about what Portland did right," Olshey said.
Olshey will have his hands full in his first offseason with the team. Portland has four picks in the upcoming draft in three weeks, including number six and 11. The team also has up to $24 million in cap space to use towards free agency.
"I like working under pressure. ...I think we're going to put our head down and move forward, and I think when we put our heads up in July after summer league we'll be in great position," Olshey added.
This past season, Portland finished just 28-38, which was 11th in the Western Conference.
