The investigation into Portland Trail Blazers president of basketball operations and general manager Neil Olshey has been extended, league sources told Yahoo Sports. 

Previously expected to wrap up shortly, the investigation could last a few weeks before a ruling on Olshey’s future is determined, sources said.

Employees of the practice facility were interviewed on Thursday and Friday. 

O’Melveny & Myers — the firm enlisted to investigate the claims — extended its investigation to interviewing individuals outside of personnel at the practice facility and including former and current employees, sources said.

Olshey is being investigated for allegedly creating a hostile work environment that includes complaints of intimidation, profanity-laced tirades and bullying, sources said.

The team released a statement acknowledging the investigation on Saturday morning.

Olshey was at Saturday’s home game against the Los Angeles Lakers, but he didn’t watch from the arena bowl, after the investigation was reported late Friday. He also attended Friday’s game against the Indiana Pacers.

Olshey, 56, is in his 10th season running basketball operations for the Trail Blazers after a stint with the Los Angeles Clippers.
