PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Portland Trail Blazers have appointed AEG Sports executive Chris McGowan as the team's new president and chief operating officer.

McGowan will manage all business operations of the team and the Rose Garden. He will report to Peter McLoughlin, chief executive officer of Vulcan Sports and Entertainment, which oversees all of Paul Allen's sports franchises and facilities.
