PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Portland Trail Blazers President Larry Miller says the team has not reached out to the Los Angeles Lakers for permission to talk to general manager Mitch Kupchak.

Miller would not comment specifically on an ESPN report Thursday that the Blazers are interested in interviewing Kupchak about the general manager’s job in Portland. The team does not want to name potential candidates.

But he did say that that the Blazers had not taken the step of asking the Lakers for permission to talk with Kupchak, who has been the head of basketball operations for the Lakers for 12 years.

The Blazers are currently operating under interim general manager Chad Buchanan, who was the team’s director of college scouting until the team parted ways with former general manager Rich Cho last May.
