Larry Harris Rumors
In this edition of the new video series LBTV, Packers hall of famer LeRoy Butler talks with former Milwaukee Bucks GM Larry Harris, now a consultant with the Golden State Warriors, about the NBA draft process, Andrew Bogut, coaching searches, player contracts, free agency and and more.
Former Denver general manager Kiki Vandeweghe is the only candidate to have formally interviewed for the job, according to sources. The club has also had preliminary conversations with Jim Paxson, Larry Harris, Jeff Weltman and Tony DiLeo, according to sources, but the Clippers seem to have turned their focus to Thursday’s draft, where they hold the 53rd pick, and free agency.
Sources close to the situation in Portland tell HOOPSWORLD that having a great relationship with team owner Paul Allen is of paramount importance in their GM search, and Harris’ great relationship with Bucks owner Herb Kohl might make him an ideal choice for the Blazers. Like the Blazers, the Bucks have a variety of both business people and basketball people making decisions about the team, meaning there are also internal similarities between Portland and Milwaukee that might make Harris the right man for the job. Harris is currently entering his fourth season as a consultant and scout for the Golden State Warriors, whom he also served as an assistant coach.
