PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -The Portland Trail Blazers introduced former Nike executive Larry Miller as their team president Wednesday.
Miller spent the last 10 years at Nike, most recently as vice president and general manager for basketball.
``For me, what I'd like to do is see this city fall in love again with the Portland Trail Blazers,'' Miller said.
Portland finished 32-50 last season, 11 more wins than in the previous season. The Trail Blazers have the first pick in the June 28 draft, when Greg Oden or Kevin Durant is expected to be the top pick.
