    Default If Bryan Colangelo is fired, who would you like to see as his replacement?

    I really have no idea who is looking for a job right now, and who would be considered a good candidate so I'm curious to hear everyone's thoughts.

    This is a tough question.

    There are a lot of really good executives out there within really well run teams.

    Orlando's GM was ridiculed this summer but is looking pretty smart now - and he is only 30 years old.

    Lindsey left SA for Utah.

    Honestly, I would look for another disciple of San Antonio as cliched as that sounds. The Spurs disciples - Presti, Cho, Hennigan, Ferry - are off to great starts w/ Cho having turned around 2 franchises in 2 years (Lillard in Portland is his handiwork due to Wallace trade; 2 first round picks accumulated in Charlotte along with drafting MKG and Taylor). Presti, you might have heard, runs OKC. Henningan as mentioned. Ferry botched Cleveland but after a year back in SA appears to have retaken a few courses and has ATL looking promising moving forward.



    Anyways, short answer: I don't know.

    Default Aw man..

    Probably Stefanski (shudders), atleast interim. I wish Embry would consider taking the job full time but he's apparently too smart for that.... In my dreams though, we trade BC and two 1st rounders for Sam Presti... If only.

    How about Kevin O'Conner former GM of the Utah Jazz?

    I think its going to be Stefanski unfortunately.

    What about Gar Forman? He was the former GM of the Chicago Bulls and was fired just this year. Guy got an EOY in 2010-2011, and was able to turn the Bulls into the best team in the regular season (yes he had help with Derrick Rose, but still).

    I'd personally want a Buford protege, but I'm not sure who's left that would be available. I think Lindsey (who we interviewed) went to Utah which sucks.

    Can someone tell me the low info on Stefanski? Wasn't he the one that drafted Iguodala or something in Philly? I thought the Philly team assembled in those couple of years was pretty good. I might be mistaken though.

    Anyways, I really don't know. I'm thinking they should start flowing with a newer, more younger GM with a more new-school fashion thinking to the table. Younger GM's may have a better look of the game today, and also have a bit of a shorter leash than B.C has, although hoping it's not to short to the point the team gets lost. Just my opinion, these younger GM's could be establishing good relationships with players (for the fact they are barely older), and may have a bit of an impatience (could be good or bad) for no results.

    He gave up GM title to Lindsey but remains president of basketball ops.

    Short answer - I don't know.

    That's the main reason I'm not following peoples twitter accounts and websites calling for BC's head because I can't think of at least 2 suitable replacements for his position.

    What I do think will happen is MSLE will ride out Colangelo contract until the end of the season and let him walk in June (as per Tom Chisholm article). Then they will had over the reins to Ed Stefanski.

    As mentioned in earlier posts, any "descendant" from the Spurs Organization will do. They seem to understand what the term competitive means.

    Unfortunate that he (and Lindsey) were a real possibility for this team a few years ago. Instead Colangelo picks Ed who really seems to have been nothing more than a yes man. In fairness I couldn't say the others wouldn't be for sure either though. But it really seemed like Ed was the bottom of the barrel pick for Colangelo (hires his staff like he does his players - for need. And he needed someone who wouldn't threaten his job)

    I believe Bower is still out there though.

    Too bad Grunwald has taken over as full time GM of New York. That guy is a problem solver and shown his worth (yet again) with the Knicks.
