    Wow! I'm not shocked but I am happy. He's been a disaster. So much so that I'm changing my avatar. Good riddance.

    conspiracy theorists on BC meddling can now rest assured.

    from Sportsnet...

    According to a press release, Colangelo will become a consultant for the team and Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment moving forward.

    Yeah, I never thought that presidency position would stick... but this was much earlier then I expected. Was thinking he would have left the team by September.

    So he's sticking around as a consultant.. I wonder what that entails? President of team ops is one thing, but consultant? That seems like he will be involved with some basketball decisions. I don't see MU actually asking BC any questions on how they can make the team better as I could see a lot of those discussions getting awkward real quick. Maybe I'm reading too much into that title. Perhaps he just stays on the teams payroll while he looks for another job somewhere else in the league.

    I can only hope he perceives a pending bargnani deal as a slap in the face.

    consultant is the title to a guy with a year left on his contract and no responsibilities to speak of.

    trianomwas fired and kept as consultant for one year.

    He'll part of the other team's front office soon. That's for sure. Weird to say but he can land better job in the NBA. ( even if his reputation is screwed right now ).

    MU: Hello Bryan thanks for coming I'd like to talk about....... Bargnani
    BC: Ah yes he had a bad year but I think alongside Gay and DeMar we can take that next step as a team.
    MU: actually I wanted to discuss trading him.....
    BC: We must stick to organic growth Bargnani is a very big part of the puzzle being a non rebounding injury prone stretch 4.
    MU: ..........Get Out Of My Office.

    my mind is racing.

    could a blow up be imminent?

    BC did say this team could make playoffs. clearly that would be ceiling and TL and MU not up for a few playoff games.

    Why do you have to get my hopes up?

    definitely.

    a change of franchise is just as important for him as it is for the Raps.

    lots of respect around league and for all his faults rightfully so IMO.

    There are three guys that I could see Bryan quitting the team over: Bargnani, DeRozan or Gay.

    Moving Bargnani is inevitable.. but I'd be very curious if MU trades Gay or DD tomorrow. Exciting times!

    Maybe he stepped down because he's too ashamed to have put this franchise is such an embarrasing position (ie. no draft pick and no cap room).

    How is trading away out best players exciting?

    With all the talk about Ujiri and Casey being on the same page I doubt MU is planning to move Gay or DeMar they have been highlighted like crazy about their off season workouts and progression going into next season, just seems weird to be like "Hey fans this is what your 2 stars are up to before we trade them"
