Neil Olshey Will Not Return To Clippers, According To Source

According to a tweet by ESPN.com's Kevin Arnovitz, Los Angeles Clippers GM Neil Olshey will not return to the Clippers organization next season:

Olshey was rumored last week to be one of the four finalists in the running for the Portland Trailblazers open GM position. Interestingly enough, Olshey's agent, Warren LeGarie, was the same agent for former Blazers GMs John Nash and Kevin Pritchard.

Originally promoted as an assistant general manager in 2008, Olshey became the Clippers GM after the organization fired Mike Dunleavy Sr. as head coach and general manager in 2010.

Notable transactions under Olshey's time as GM include the drafting of Blake Griffin in 2009 and the trade for Chris Paul during this past year's NBA offseason.

Before his stint in the front office, Olshey was the Director of Player Personnel starting in 2003 and became an assistant coach in 2004.
