Report: Blazers Eyeing Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak

The Portland Trail Blazers are yet again looking to fill an open general manager position, and according to Chris Broussard and Marc Stein of ESPN, they have their eyes on a big target -- Los Angeles Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak.

Kupchak has been in the Lakers' front office for over 25 years, and he's been in charge ever since Jerry West left in the summer of 2000. Sources tell ESPN that the Blazers have a strong interest in stealing him away, but Blazers president Larry Miller told the Oregonian that he "can't answer" whether he plans to seek permission to talk to Kupchak.

"Maybe," Miller said. "I don't want to get into who's on our list [and] not on our list."

The Blazers fired Rich Cho last May and have been looking for a new general manager ever since. Chad Buchanan currently holds the position on an interim basis.
