    Is any of that news though? I saw that earlier and thought, "didn't even BC say at the end of season presser that the decision would be made in 2-3 weeks"? That lines up a decision for this week...I guess there's just nothing for him to write about.

    Yup.

    It has been known for a while that BC was suppose to give a presentation to MLSE board on, the date I read somewhere, May 7th.

    There's pretty much been a wall of silence surrounding Raptors re: fate of everybody, but expectation is decision comes soon after meeting

    So from what I understand this is just a routine end of season meeting today right?

    Nope. It's a meeting deciding the fate of Colangelo. I think. Eh.

    This meeting was essentially for BC to plead his case in receiving his Option year on his Contract from MLSE.
    Nothing routine about this, in terms of implications.

    Again, today's meeting w/ Colangelo & MLSE board members is not make or break but part of normal post-season wrap for basketball operations
    I dont know I read this and havent seen any other tweets.

    Well, Eric Koreen tweeted me it would be late in the afternoon - which should be soon.

    The decision likely won't be made today, but BC is begging for his job as we speak. And from my understanding, that was the main purpose of the meeting; however, Michael Grange may be proving me wrong.

    If no one else is tweeting that it's just "routine", then are Michael Grange's sources coming into question?

    This is my belief, yes.

    And in fact, we now have confirmation that Leiweke IS sitting in on the meeting, via National Post:
    Quote National Post wrote:
    Multiple sources told the National Post that Colangelo met with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment’s board of directors on Tuesday, including new company president and chief executive officer, Tim Leiweke.
    However, theres also this nugget:
    Quote National Post wrote:
    It was not immediately clear if Tuesday’s meeting was going to influence MLSE one way or the other — the meeting had been scheduled since before the season ended.
    So its still not quite clear that the initial intent of the meeting was.
    I'm sticking with the idea that MLSE Managers Outlook Calendars read "BC Begs for his Job Today".

    For me, it's ridiculous to think that this meeting changes anything either way. The guy has been around for 7 years. He has a track record going back into the 90s with Phoenix. If you don't know what you have in Colangelo by now, well, I don't know what to say - you have no idea what you are doing and are so dense you should immediately be euthanized. You either want him or you don't. You can't be up in the air on this guy after 7 years. You just can't.

    I have no idea what will happen but all I can do is look at TFC and the Leafs where MLSE chopped people on a moment's notice. Yet, here we are still without any answer on BC. It's very odd.

    This is the type of hiring I find very interesting.

    http://www.nba.com/suns/suns-name-mc...eneral-manager

    The 33-year-old McDonough is considered one of the game’s brightest young minds, who combines a tireless work ethic with an expertise in player evaluation honed over the past 10 years at virtually every level of an NBA franchise’s basketball operations.

    McDonough joins the Suns after most recently serving the past three seasons as the assistant general manager of the Boston Celtics, where he assisted Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge on all basketball-related matters, while being principally responsible for the draft evaluation of college and international players. He combines the experience of nearly a decade of in-person scouting of prospects across the globe with an understanding of advanced metrics and statistical analysis. During his tenure with the Celtics, Boston made two appearances in the NBA Finals, and claimed the 2008 title.

    McDonough joined the Celtics front office in 2003 as a 23-year-old special assistant to basketball operations, rapidly moving up the team’s ranks with increased responsibility at each stop, always with an emphasis in talent evaluation. He spent four seasons as a special assistant, a role that included a great deal of video scouting work (2003-07), one season as director of amateur scouting (2007-08), one season as director of international scouting (2008-09), and two seasons as director of player personnel (2008-10) before his promotion to assistant general manager in Sept. 2010.

    McDonough played a prominent role in the front office of a club that has kept a veteran-led roster in the playoffs the last six consecutive seasons thanks to an infusion of young talent acquired through quality late first-round draft picks and trades. Included in that list are the draft-day acquisition of four-time All-Star Rajon Rondo in 2006, and the 2010 selection of Avery Bradley, who was one of the NBA’s most improved players in 2012-13.

    Everyone was panning Orlando and Rob Hennigan and after one year on the job he has shown a lot of people they were incredibly short sighted. Tobias Harris for JJ Redick still blows my mind.

    John Hammond really blew that one. Especially as a manager of a team that desperately needs an SF (sorry Mbah a Moute).

    Tobias is going to be the centerpiece of Orlando for years to come.
