Thegeneral manager search continues for the Portland Trail Blazers asowner Paul Allen recently interviewed two GM candidates former New Orleans Hornets GM Jeff Bower and current Indiana PacersGM David Morway.

TrailBlazers' president, Larry Miller, says they're not done conductinginterviews and the plan is to have at least three candidates sit downwith Allen before it's all said and done.

We'llkeep interviewing, Miller told

That'snot to belittle those who have already sat in front of Allen,the Trail Blazers are simply making sure they organize a thoroughsearch. According to Miller, there's still no timetable on when theywant to land a GM, which allows them ample time to make sure they'rehiring the right candidate this time around.

Nevertheless,the plan is to have their position filled by June 28.

Wejust want to have one (GM) in place by the draft, Miller said. Wewant to make sure we're doing this right.

Millersays as of now, they do not have an interview scheduled for thisweek, but mentions that can change.
