With Pritchard just getting the boot out of Portland, he probably jumps to the head of the candidates' list.
I don't know what to think if I was Pritchard. It'd be nice to have a owner who has no problems spending money, but if said owner likes to have his hands in everything, it's probably not worth it. And from most reports, that's exactly what he dealt with in Portland, so why take the (likely) chance again?
