The Blazers say they were “recently notified of concerns around workplace environment by non-player personnel at the practice facility. In response, we immediately engaged O’Melveny & Myers, an outside firm with significant expertise in this area, to conduct a full, fair and independent review into these concerns and will take appropriate action based on its outcome.”
Olshey has not responded to multiple text messages left by The Athletic.
“We don’t have a comment on this matter at this time.” said the Blazers in a team statement.
We will provide more information on the situation as it comes out.
