He will be the seventh African American head coach hired out of eight openings this offseason in the NBA. New Orleans is finalizing an agreement with Suns assistant Willie Green, and Portland (Chauncey Billups), Atlanta (Nate McMillan), Orlando (Jamahl Mosely), Boston (Ime Udoka) and Dallas (Jason Kidd) hired African American coaches. Four of them — including Unseld Jr., Mosely, Billups and Green — are assistants getting first-time opportunities as head coaches.
When WW asked the Trail Blazers today about the pornographic images, franchise spokesperson Ashley Clinkscale told WW that the organization is now aware of the posts and will no longer be using Hallman’s services. She did not say whether Hallman was the primary investigator for the Billups inquiry. “Though the Trail Blazers have used the Adler Group for the past 11 years, we were recently made aware of inappropriate content on the personal twitter page of the principal of the Adler Group. The content of the Twitter page is completely unacceptable and is counter to what we stand for as an organization. As a result, we will no longer be using their services,” Clinkscale tells WW.
On the same account, Hallman shared tweets skeptical of transgender rights and proclaiming allegiance to the “Thin Blue Line” movement of police officers—not entirely surprising, given his law enforcement background, but politically charged for someone trusted to manage a sensitive investigation. His retweeting of these images raises questions—not only about his own judgment, but about how closely the Blazers organization and Olshey monitored the investigator whose work they cited to reassure fans that the allegation against Billups had been thoroughly examined.
