    Has the current managment group done that poor of a job drafting the last couple of years? We'll have to wait and see with Ross since he hasn't received steady pt yet, but JV, ED?

    Anyone know whom else Weltman interviewed with? Was anyone else after him?
    He was one of the final candidates for the Suns GM position this summer. He also interviewed with the Raptors in 2004 (I believe) and, to my memory, has spoken with other teams as well for GM roles.

    * Weltman will receive a significant bump in pay in his new job with the Raptors.

    Some NBA officials claim Weltman will be paid more than $1 million a year for the next five years. That is almost double the amount most assistant GMs are paid.

    Heard an interview with him on fan590 this evening. As usual these hockey centric bozos gave the guy what seemed like about 6-7 mins. and then said bye to him. He seemed pleasant enough but non committal about the immediate plans but interestingly has the opinion that in the NBA world Toronto is considered a "cherry" franchise and to be looked out for if it starts a winning tradition. Grange & Friedmann interviewed him and as usual nothing particularly incisive.

    Always wondering if Toronto media portray's MLSE members as boring and crap with their inability to ask intriguing questions, or is it a ratings thing where Torontonians are stupid, or not informed, and they have to ask bland questions in order for people to understand what's going on.

    I think the later.

    I read someplace (?) that the reason was Adams disagreeing with Forman on a player move...I wonder who. That would be a no-no with most orgs. and probably why Thibodeau is a bit restrained.

    The Bulls, despite being the 3rd or 4th largest market and always turning a profit, are ridiculously cheap.

    I would be pissed as a coach as well when financial trades are taking priority over basketball trades.

    I don't think it would be a problem in Toronto though - if the statements of TL/MU are to be believed about deep MLSE/Rogers/Bell pockets.
