    Interesting comment about Phil Jackson never really being a legitimate option to consider, since he had little-to-no intention of leaving southern California.

    Still can't believe how well spoken Leiweke is. Each and every interview he does is better than the last one.

    Ryan Wolstat ‏@WolstatSun 2m
    RT @RaptorsMR: Ujiri will be President & GM, Basketball Operations. Colangelo will serve as President, ... http://m.tmi.me/XHbIp
    So hopefully this addresses some silly conflicts.

    BC will likely be a GM for another team very soon.

    Leiweke: 2 options, blow it up and go for 2014 draft + free agency, or keep core and make superstar trade now.

    Leiweke to Toronto: Don't hate on Bargs. Or anyone on the team. We need their perceived value to be high so can we deal them high.

    Actually he said there are 3 options, and the third one is to mix the two and build on the fly.

    *grits teeth*

    Andrea Bargnani is my hero. He is the toughest guy in the league and I put Primo on everything.

    The mix is what I've been wanting and it allows them to really get started much faster.

    Wolstat's saying Ujiri isn't interested in amnestying anyone, whether it be Bargnani or Kleiza. Hmmmm.

    Then he is looking to keep all his trade pieces for the deadline, if true.

    The only thing amnestying Kleiza does now is save them the luxury tax - unless they make other trades with less money coming back.

    I can see Bell/Rogers paying the luxury tax for a winner. Find it hard to believe they will do it with the mish mash currently on the roster.

    To Amnesty Bargnani he would need to go tell the board he requires $23M to pay Andrea to go away. Tough sell perhaps(even if there are better options)?

    For Kleiza its less of a sell but still, $3 or 4M is nothing to balk at, especially if they're not in tax trouble.

    As much as we've all been assuming Kleiza is destined to be amnestied, I actually see good potential value in expiring contracts this season, especially as trade assets for teams willing to add salary.

    Not only does Kleiza give Ujiri another trade asset this offseason (possibly with Bargnani), but 2014 is shaping up to have a strong draft and free agent market, with many teams already looking to shed salary ahead of next offseason. I could see many more teams deciding to take that approach if/when their 2013-2014 season doesn't live up to lofty expectations.

    With so many teams likely looking to shed salary and add draft picks at the trade deadline, it could be a fantastic opportunity for 'vulture teams' to swoop in and acquire players at below market value. Keeping Kleiza on the roster gives Uriji another trade asset, which could be used on its own to return up to $5.85M in salary.

    I really like the idea of Ujiri maximizing the number of assets at his disposal. Worst-case scenario is $4.6M coming off the Raptors books after the season, allowing them to potentially be players in the 2014 free agent market.
