    Didn't Colangelo walk into a perfect situation? Which star-candidate would walk into a bad situation? Also, the bench needs a lot of work, and the only assets here to improve it without creating a hole by trading a starter are: Bargnani, Ross, Kleiza, Gray, Lucas and Fields. For Bargnani you'll be lucky to get more than small pieces or damaged goods at this point. I assume you'd want to keep Ross-- maybe you could trade a draft pick or player on a rookie contract for him. Kleiza... Gray... Lucas-- who doesn't want a point guard who can only drive with one hand? Fields is another I assume they would want to keep-- you could probably get a solid bench player for him, but he already is a solid bench player.

    So a bench with a kid with potential, one solid bench player, a third pg with one hand, an inconsistent enigma, a slow but professional center, and Kleiza is ready to reach the playoffs? I think the starting lineup-- though the pieces may not fit well -- is borderline playoff caliber, but that bench is hurting.

    It would be morally wrong of Ujiri to leave Denver. Money is the only thing Raps. can dangle but I doubt Ujri would fall for it.

    Besides it may be a little premature to talk about this.
    Please elaborate on how coming to Toronto violates morals.

    Doing anything that involves you making more money obviously violates moral codes, or aren't you a socialist?

    It is morally correct to be loyal and grateful to the people who made success possible by believing in you and giving you an opportunity. In this case Ujiri could show his loyalty and gratitude by re-signing there. If Toronto swayed him away by offering him an unmatchable salary, Ujiri would be leaving Denver for one reason and one reason only. Money. If money is greater than gratitude, it's Immoral.

    I could be wrong but in his brief time here, Ujiri struck me as a man of good morals and so I doubt he'll leave Denver.
