An article from the NY Post. First the B.S.
The B.S. continued through the obvious NY Post direction about how this means Colangelo probably could potentially may come to New York. Typical Vecsey nonsense...Bryan Colangelo is on the final year of his contract as Raptors president and someone who used to work for the franchise (no, not Isiah Thomas, no, not Butch Carter, no, aw, forget it) claims he's in danger of being released when it expires June 30 or possibly months earlier.
Oddly enough he talked to someone else instead of dropping an inaccurate bomb on the basketball world.
That's funny because based on all the bogus crap Vecsey has written in the past I figured he felt no shame. Anyway, common sense prevailed this time as he got another opinion:I hate when someone shames me into doing that. It's so damn time-consuming and often spoils a juicy story.
At least one person close to Bryan bristled when I ran the above suspicious by him.It galled the guy even more that I'm speculating Bryan might trespass on Walsh's land without first substantiating whether his Raptors days really are numbered."I know the perception of the staff internally is that Bryan is going to be extended before Richard Peddie steps down at CEO of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment," e-mailed someone in prime position to confirm or deny such an allegation. "I believe Richard 100% when he says publicly he's committed to getting an extension done with Bryan.
"With plausible rumors of a change in majority ownership swirling, and with Richard participating in the selection of his own replacement (he announced his resignation a couple months ago, effective Dec. 31 this year), I believe the last thing he wants to do is to conduct a search for B.C's replacement.
"Richard is not bluffing when he gives his full support to Bryan--so, if a change were to get made it would be entirely the result of ownership's decision, and ownership really likes Bryan. In fact, I believe the ownership/management situation gives B.C. considerable leverage in negotiating an extension.""It's hard to fathom the majority ownership making a change with either the Raptors or Leafs GM if they're intent on selling. It's equally hard to fathom them making a change in either position if they're not selling -- and so far they've not said they're selling in the near future."Source: NYpost.comsomeone else on the scene owning peripheral vision on such matters, there's a long-term plan in place, with an emphasis on patience, that's supported by both Bryan and ownership.
"When our team lost Chris Bosh to free agency, traded Hedo Turkoglu and injuries dragged us down more, we became all about rebuilding and focusing on youth development."
