Blazers Hire Rich Cho as new GM
I don't know a lot about him but he sounds like Tom Penn but better to me. Anyone know anything about him? I would prefer to still have KP but i do like this hire. Thoughts?

Re: Blazers Hire Rich Cho as new GM
The Portland Trail Blazers have named Rich Cho as the team’s new general manager, Trail Blazers President Larry Miller announced today. Per team policy, financial details were not disclosed.

“Rich is the perfect fit for our organization,” said Miller. “He has the right balance of basketball knowledge, business acumen and tremendous people skills. Everyone I spoke to about Rich commented not just on his qualifications but on who he is as a person. He is well known for his ability to connect genuinely with people. Rich will be a great fit for our organization and for Portland. He is an executive on the rise and we’re thrilled to have him as a Trail Blazer.”

Re: Blazers Hire Rich Cho as new GM
Yeah, sounds like a Tom Penn clone. Great with contracts, unknown when it comes to evaluating talent. Also, this means we got a guy who has no experience with making trades, something Larry Miller claimed was important for candidates to have.

I'm taking a wait and see approach.
