Source: CBS SportsBryan Colangelo, Raptors: The Raptors' complicated ownership group has to decide whether to pick up options for Colangelo and coach Jay Triano, and the early indications are that the coach has a better chance of staying. Although ownership was on board with Colangelo's plan to deal with the aftermath of Chris Bosh's departure -- rebuild with youth and picks rather than sacrifice the future -- there's a level of disappointment that the team hasn't accomplished more at this stage of Colangelo's tenure. One source described Colangelo's future as "definitely up in the air." There's also a feeling that Triano has done his part under difficult circumstances to develop young players -- such as Jerryd Bayless, DeMar DeRozan and especially Ed Davis -- and that if someone is going to get blamed, it won't be Triano. That leaves only one other candidate.
Please, give me a break here. I see a whole lot wrong with this:
- I think he's basing all this on that now very old article about the accountant on the board resenting Colangelo for getting better opportunities in life. Since then there have been multiple reports that MLSE will get it done with Colangelo
- Jay Triano is at the end of his contract. Berger doesn't seem to know this which makes me wonder if he did any research besides clicking on a couple Google links.
- The prior point is more important if Colangelo isn't around because new GM's like to bring in their own coaches. With Triano's contract expired a new GM would have zero resistence in bringing a new head coach.
- Triano has not done a good job with the team.
