There is a MLSE board meeting today and high on the agenda is the future of Colangelo.
“It’s an important issue,” said one source. “It’s front and centre, but the time lines are fluid, it doesn’t have to be decided today or next week or next month.”
But what will happen or is happening isn’t so clear. There may be no fixed deadline in place, but there is an urgency to decide what MLSE will do regarding it’s lead basketball executive as club tries to rebuild. Colangelo remains under contract until June 30th.
Meanwhile, as Hayley Mick reports, Colangelo and his staff are scouring Europe and the United States to take advantage of the draft picks they may or may not get to use in June while deciding on how aggressive they want to be at the trade deadline later this month – do you nibble around the edges and move expiring contracts like Reggie Evans’? Or do you jump in at the deep and go for a complete makeover and test the market for the likes of Andrea Bargnani
