Trail Blazers general manager has been fired by owner Paul Allen, less than an hour before the 2010 NBA Draft was set to begin.

A source close to Pritchard said Allen informed the popular general manager that Thursday would be his last day of work, which will include conducting the Blazers draft.

Yep, saw this coming all off-season long. Its a pity, he's a great GM and will for sure find a job somewhere else.

Phoenix? I bet he finds another job within the week. This will be the new Blazers curse. Prepare to be "Pritch-slapped," Paul Allen.

Roy, Bayless, Oden, LA to Phoenix for Amundson and Dragic.

Then KP becomes their new GM. Ahhhhh the ironing is delicious.

dude i was thinking the same thing. How are you going to ask him to do whats best for the team and his biggest day on the job then fire him the day after? If your going to fire him...fire him after the season. This is just wrong.

I expect the Blazers to make a strong move to steal Warkentien away from Denver.

Clipper should go after him. I bet he could turn that franchise around.
