    PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Trail Blazers have extended the contracts of Michael Born, Director of NBA Scouting, and Chad Buchanan, Director of College Scouting, it was announced today by General Manager Kevin Pritchard.
     
    The two-year extensions will keep Born and Buchanan under contract through June of 2012.
     
    “Both Mike and Chad have done a tremendous job for us in their six years here,” said Pritchard. “They’re tireless workers who sleep, eat and drink basketball and have played a huge role in our success.”

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.
