Once Bargnani is moved I'm sure we'llhear some dirt on the guy. That's always how it works in Raptorsland.
The waiting game does continue. As Chisholm notes, the press conference cleared up little to nothing.
With Ujiri, all we know is that we don’t know. We have no idea how he views the roster that he’s inherited. We have no idea if he plans to augment the existing core or tear it apart and rebuild. We have no idea if he’ll hunt for a draft pick this June, if he’ll amnesty Andrea Bargnani or if he wants to make the playoffs next season or not. Really, all we know is that Masai Ujiri is the new president of basketball operations and general manager of the Toronto Raptors and that he isn’t ready to talk specifics.

the guy just got hired. what they hell do people expect? transform the raptors in a 24hr period?
also leiweke from 590,
"I already hired two championship GMs"
But how does it help anyone for him to divulge his intentions and give that info to all the listening shark GMs (including those on this forum) At least give him time to after the free agency period and I am sure most will get a sense of the direction he will be going in.
Masi talked about growing young players. So that just goes back to the organic growth BC mentioned all this time. I agree nothing (information wise, direction) came from this interview.
I am curious to see what we hear from this organization in the coming weeks. Seems like the same sales pitch just being delivered by different players now.

Just goofy to ask specific roster questions of him and expect any kind of serious answer.
As for "what's you philosophy for the team?" Same thing. He as much as said, I like to grow from within, see good talented young guys get better, and the team philosophy will depend on who we have and what they can do.
I also think he's a pretty shrewd guy and probably realizes that a strategy of letting his moves do the talking is a smart one following BC.
I think we should get a "Everything Leiweke + Ujiri" thread
Some more Ujiri insight from the Devlin interview. Makes it seem like a semi rebuild could be in the works. Also has a nice dig at BC.
"For me it's not the playoffs, it's not to get in. For me it's easy to figure out a playoff team if that's your goal, but the ultimate goal is to build a championship. You want to be able to compete for the Larry O'brien trophy. I feel sometimes it might take time, you know, like we might take some punches in the nose, and that's what we'll do. When we set up our plan, and gather all our information, we'll figure out the best way to get there, and we'll attack it. It's the only prize in basketball that should be a focus for us as a team."'
All sorts of subtle shots at Colangelo, lol
