The Trail Blazers’ search for a general manager will likely include “two or three” more candidates, who will join Jeff Bower and David Morway as finalists, president Larry Miller said.

Bower, the former New Orleans general manager, and Morway, the general manager of the Pacers, are the only candidates who have interviewed with owner Paul Allen.

“We are still looking to get a least a few more people in front of Paul … at least two or three,” Miller said. “We are still going through the process of determining who those folks are.”

Miller, who is heading the search with Blazers’ head of the board of directors, Bert Kolde, alluded to pursuing candidates who are currently employed by NBA teams.
