Default Colangelo OUT as GM!!!

Quote:
According to multiple reports, Bryan Colangelo's tenure as president and general manager of the Toronto Raptors has come to an end.

But that doesn't mean his stay in Toronto is over altogether. Colangelo will reportedly stay on with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment in a corporate, non-basketball role. According to reportsm MLSE is also attempting to lure Denver Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri to take over for Colangelo and run the Raptors basketball operations.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports wrote on twitter this morning, "Colangelo's finalizing agreement to move over to business side, leaving basketball ops. Ownership preparing major financial offer for Ujiri."

While I'm not happy that he's still a part of the organization, this gives me some hope:

Careful what you wish for :

One word : Ujiri.

Is this the very same Ujiri hired by Collangelo to be an assit GM before Denver ?

Is this the very same Ujiri that was so high on Bargnani that he came over after storngly recommneding he draft him 1st over all ?

I am entirely uncertain if he would be my choice regardless of where BC works. Further BC brought him to the NBA did he not ?

It would frankly be better if BC simply moved on and they brought in the basketball guy they want - decisively - as per post below.

Someone needs to explain to me how president of the Raptors is a "non basketball operations" role.

I should have known this story was too good to be true.

Default Re: Colangelo OUT as GM!!!

i dont mind keeping BC on as President especially since it has been made clear itvwill be in a non basketball operations role meaning drafting, trades, free agents etc and the new GM will report directly to Lewieke. Classy move!! I mean think about it this way BC made alot of strides corporate wise to move this team forward. it was the first team to have uts own NBA tv channel. first to have 3d in the arena. has created tons of co munity programs not only on toronto but across canada. we ll agree BC failed s GM of the raptors by not being able to construct a chmpionship calibre team in the 7 years hes been here but you cant deny his efforts as president at the corporate level. hes a veryvwell respected executive who can offer a lotvto this organization and keeping him on will help take some of the early job pressures off of Lewieke. in a few years BC will probably be offered another President/GM role somewhere else and he will be gone but in the meantime im perfectly fine keeping him in his corporate role and away from basketball player decisions. besides on a more humanitarian level the dude win or lose gave his best and hes one of us i mean this guy really really loves toronto and wanted to be a part of this organization. hes a raptor. this is a classy move for the raptors and will be viewed like that by the entire nba including the next GM, our own players, and possible player recruits. way to go Lewikie treating people with respect is the first step in creating a new culture in torontonone that has the potential to be a place where top players want to live and play!!

Yes, he was hired from Denver

No, he came to the Raps after the Bargs draft.

No BC did not bring him in, I believe the Nuggets did. Colangelojust hired him away from the Nuggets.

It's not BC's decision anymore.

They said on ESPN that he's still retaining his role as president, just not GM. Is that not true?
