Berger: GM job Ferry’s to turn down

From Ken Berger of CBS Sports:

The Trail Blazers’ GM position remains Danny Ferry’s job to turn down, and that’s exactly what Ferry is expected to do, a high-level coaching source familiar with the situation said. The meddling ownership elements that resulted in the demise of Kevin Pritchard and Tom Penn are still in place, and that’s a concern for Ferry, who may not be eager to step back into such a situation after an exhausting experience in Cleveland.

No surprises here.

UPDATE: The following report by Nathan Begley of Portland Roundball Society has since been retractedcaught up with Ferry in San Antonio, who says the position has not been offered:

I can truthfully say that I have not turned down the job because it has not been offered to me.

Again, that statement from Ferry has been retracted.
