Nice find Opti.
This is the point I've been wondering for quite a while.With their eyes on an ever-more-probable exit, the pension plan’s representatives have appeared unwilling exert influence on a future that isn’t likely to include them. That’s been a boon to the Raptors’ GM, of course, since the pension plan’s Glen Silvestri has made a name as the chief anti-Colangelo voice on the board of directors.
Glad to hear they've finally come to their sense.

I was gonna post this but had to step away. I'm ecstatic about the news. Shows that they do see consistency as an issue with our franchise and that BC's work has more positives than negatives. It's a great move on the franchise's part to consider this. I'm happy for BC.

About effin time.
Right on, now lets go get that #1 pick tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great, now a number 1 pick would cap it off.
Sources confirm Bryan Colangelo has agreed to contract extension as #Raptors GM. 2-yr deal with a club option for 3rd.

Bad decision. Hopefully it is only a 2 year deal with a team option for the 3rd year.
If he brings back Triano to coach again after 3 consecutive losing seasons under his tenure we will get to witness another 50+ loss season.
Hopefully that means another high pick in 2012. Raps need the talent.
well, thank GAWWD! i'd hate to see just how low this franchise would sink without BC steering the ship.
now, excuse me while i make plans to watch the lottery tonight...can't wait to see where the raps will be picking...again.
TRUE LOVE - Sometimes you know it the instant you see it across the bar.
Only franchise in the NBA where you can lose 60 games and expect contract extensions.
Can't wait to hear the logic for bringing Triano back. The "players liking him" will proably be a popular phrase.lol
Good news for sure, now let's go and win the lottery.
Thanks god. Finally this team has decided to maintain a constant presence in management. This will go a looong way in establishing a team identity in the long run. These players need to be held accountable to some franchise identity. Colangelo now has the mandate to define this identity.
What about the year before however when a team that everyone thought was playoff bound? Triano guided them to a losing season.
What about the year before that when Mitchell was fired for underachieving at 8-9 and Triano proceeded to usher in a 25-40 finish? lol
Triano didn't have much talent last year I agree but even when he's had more talent in previous years what has he shown as a coach?
Everyone refers to this year but seem to forget the last 2 losing seasons he had. Name me another NBA coach with 2 losing seasons than a 60 loss season that is still employed wit the same team the following year?
calls plays out of timeouts that are ridiculous or exactly the same as out of the previous timeout,
or fails to hold players accountable,
or plays old injured expiring contracts instead of young developing players in a foregone conclusion season,
or pulls players when hot and rested but sticks with players who are so cold they make polar bears shiver
or plays foolish matchups against other lineups
or fails to call timeouts when the bleeding has reached amputated proportions
Nah, he should be brought back. I do remember an article that made me consider him as an option for one more year, but I forget what it said now and back on the boot his ass out mindset.
Ok. And you seem to be ok with that. I'm not, and I like the fact that Colangelo isn't either.
The Raptors were dealt a good player in Bosh, he tried to build around him, didn't work, end of story.
