Los Angeles Clippers general manager Neil Olshey is getting interviewed by the Portland Trail Blazers.
Could Neil Olshey be on his way out? The Los Angeles Clippers don't seem all that interested in keeping him up to this point, and he's starting to take a look around. Ken Berger has these reports on Olshey meeting for a vacancy with another NBA organization.

Olshey does not have a contract for next season with the Clippers.— Ken Berger (@KBergCBS) May 29, 2012
Olshey currently holds both the position of General Manager along with VP of Basketball Operations for the Clippers. He got the position when Mike Dunleavy, Sr. was fired as head coach and general manager for the Clippers in 2010. Before that point, Olshey had been a part of the Clippers as Director of Player Personnel in 2003 and became an assistant coach starting in 2004. In 2008, Olshey moved up to assistant general manager. Olshey's most important moves have come via drafting Blake Griffin and scooping up Chris Paul in that big trade.
