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 helped guide the NHL's Los Angeles Kings and Major League Soccer's Los Angeles Galaxy as chief operating officer of AEG Sports.
McGowan, who joins the Blazers on Nov. 12, succeeds Larry Miller, who left the Blazers in July to return to Nike.
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.
Neil Olshey, the team's general manager, who was appointed in June, will manage all basketball operations.
