It's no secret that Steve Kerr is one of the Trail Blazers' preferred candidates, if not the top choice, for the team's general manager opening. Although Kerr reportedly told Portland earlier this month that he wasn't interested in the position, the Blazers didn't give up their pursuit of the former Suns executive. According to Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype, Blazers president Larry Miller met with Kerr on Saturday, though nothing concrete materialized regarding the GM job.
"The media guys in Portland are getting ahead of themselves with this story," said Kerr's agent, Mark Bartelstein. "Steve has a good relationship with Larry Miller and met with him, but nothing specific was addressed and no offer was made. Steve is very happy with his job at TNT and his life right now, being able to be around his children and spending time with his family. A unique set of circumstances would have to happen for Steve to give up on that. He's not actively looking for anything."
The Blazers are thought to have interest in current NBA executives like John Hammond and Mitch Kupchak, so the team's GM search figures to continue into the offseason, when Portland can receive permission to talk to currently-employed candidates.
