So basically in corportate double speak terms -
(1) make the team exciting (2) get us to the first round in the playoffs so we can charge more money for tickets the next season and get all that lucrative playoff revenue (3) get the 'general' fans talking about the team again making it 'spin' as positive as Anthopolis and the Blue Jays regardless of whether you actually win a championship or not...
Again sigh no mark Cuban standing in the wings.
Multiple sources have confirmed that Bryan Colangelo has signed a two-year extension with a club option for a third year to stay on as the Toronto Raptorsí General Manager. The timing of this announcement is important since the 2011 NBA Draft is taking place on June 23, meaning that Colangelo will be able to focus on the Raptorsí draft strategy once he learns where the team will be picking in the first round after tonightís draft lottery.
only 2 years guaranteed. that is probably the shortest extension you will find for an nba bball exec. Pretty much a vote of non-confidence.
