    Is MLSE responsible for the re-building of the team and not Colangelo?

    WolstatSun
    Also was told BC wanted to trade for vets and make playoff push earlier in year before losing skid but was "voted down by other voices."
    3 minutes ago via TweetDeck
    Later on, it was reported on the meetings with Colangelo

    WolstatSun
    Source with knowledge of situation tells me 99% chance BC is re-upped, and likely for 5 years.

    Contract years of management can be dangerous. It's only natural for a manager in such a situation to first secure his long term life with the organization and then place the team second. I can believe that rumor. If it is true then props to the board I guess for pulling the plug on band aid moves. I want this team to win the right way. The youth movement is on and that's the best path now.

    Ugh yeah why would he do that? I'm gonna pretend I didn't read that and go back to the world I previously lived in where BC was making smart rebuilding moves.

    So long as the directive has been handed down that the Raps need to rebuild proper rather than sell everything for a shot at the playoffs, which isn't even possible at this point, Colangelo is the man I want captaining the ship.

    The dude is an impeccable drafter. Given the situation the Raps are in at the moment, that's exactly what they need.

    Once you've been a Raps fan for more than 5 years you realize that living in a delusional fantasy world is an important skill to master - the reality is normally too awful to bear.

    He is very good in drafts. I want to see him hold a roster together though. If he makes drastic changes again for the third off-season in a row I'm going to be pissed. That is, of course, assuming he's back...

    Considering the guys under contract next year are Bargnani, Calderon, DD, Davis, Johnson, Alabi, Bayless, Kleiza, and possibly Barbosa, there could easily be 6 new faces (2 new draft picks and 4 more roster spots). Are Wright, Dorsey, Weems, Ajinca, Trey, Evans all going to back? I hope not all of them. Also, I wouldn't mind seeing some of the guaranteed contracts sent off either (actually only 2 guess which?).

    Bottom line there could be 6 plus new faces.

    Well, I'd like to see Dorey and Evans back in the paint next season. I think Dorsey is Colangelo's call. Evans on the other hand will have many teams knocking. Right off the bat the Heat come to mind as a team who could desperately use a scrappy blue collar big man like Evans. Bosh isn't going to do that work and Haslem can't be expected to do it all.

    I don't care if Weems is out but I would like to see Wright here again even if what he brings is not desperately needed. They need guys like Wright who can make an impact while not given the luxury of getting a good flow due to lack of consistent PT.

    The only true shake-up BC can do is trade Bargs and we all know that's not happening EVER.

    the prob with T.O teams is we always want to rebuild every few years... we give guys a chance & when the titles dont roll in right after we burn these guys out of town...

    BC is a good GM... but even the best GM's Dont build championships over night... give it time...

    my main prob. is Maurizio.... knowing the way BC operates.. he likes to have his managment team be able to have a voice & i think MG has a loud voice in that room, im sure hes the main reason we keep going after all these Euro's.. The so called Godfather of Euro-Ball is Killing US with all the turkydoo, & bargs... i doubt BC drafts Bargs without MG begging him to....

    Maurizio Is the real prob. with this team... GET RID OF MG... NOT BC!

    Colangelo should be extended only until 2012-2013 season, when the Raptors should be a legitimate playoff team again. He needs to be evaluated on how he improves a playoff team, since he has a poor record building around Bosh. He needs one more chance.

    I think if he's extended he's going to want something more long term than that. Otherwise what's the point in him signing on? It's not like he can't find a better offer on the market than a two year deal. I'm expecting a 4-5 year extension.

    He just snagged James Johnson from Chicago, robbing them blind with Miami's 1st round pick! Sign the man to a long term contract. I dunno who's worse, Bryan Colangelo or Brian Burke?

    What are the preseason win predictions for TO in 2010-11? 15-25? Get a grip and come equip as Bargnani is the Raptor's Franchise player now.

    Bosh left TO because he wanted to- point blank, and yes your sh*t does stank.

    BC and the truth are two different realities when discussing Boshs' free agency post all star break period- you believed that media hyped Bull Chit propaganda not I- recognize the lies, or not- Nell Carter.

    Hissy fit? NBA Team's player's have been showing up at the start of September for training camp since Sikma was a Sonic- what do you really know about the NBA? Players can rest in the TDot- can they not? DeMar has been playing in the LA Summer Drew League as well as he played in Vegas- and? He's here ready to go to work but not one international player is currently in the TDot representing- that is a certified fact no matter what you believe or post to the contrary.

    I think that you should go sit in the corner- son, you're str8 up over & done.

    Fyi- leaders lead by example while toy boys like Bargnani follow so for now just follow the leader (YG'z!!!):

    You are absolutely entitled to your opinion but your rant is prototyipcal of what is exactly wrong in Toronto sports. Since the Raptors joined the league in 1995, they have had 7 head coaching changes; 4 GM changes. In only 16 years of existence, that is alot of change and inconsistency.

    While BC has certainly made some questionable moves, there is no denying that his moves were made to improve the team and to surround Bosh with capable talent. Who could have predicted that Hedo would have turned out that way. JO was decent when he wasnt injured. Lets not forget that BC is only GM to win a division title in team history, with a roster full of international (Euro) players.

    Point being, BC has a credible name in the league, has had success in both Phoenix and Toronto. With the departure of Bosh, this is a fresh start for the Raptors, to start anew and build a new era and who better to head that rebuilding than a two time winner of GM of the year. Letting go of BC would set the raptors back a few more years and who out there, with BCs credentials, is available and willing to sign with the Raps?
