Hollinger: I'm lukewarm on a Colangelo extension

Jay (Toronto)

Have you heard anything about colangelo's possible extension? Will it happen and do you think he should be extended?

John Hollinger (2:46 PM)

I'm told it's very likely to happen. I'm lukewarm on it; certainly there are worse GMs in the league than Colangelo, but if I were MLSE I wouldn't be giving him a long-term deal and I would really push him to make a more inspired coaching hire.

Darren (Toronto)

I love the Raps core (Bargnani, DeRozan, Davis, & Johnson) and believe Calderon is in the to 40% of starting pg's in the NBA - Do you think I'm being overly optimistic about their future?

John Hollinger (2:11 PM)

Yes. The aforementioned core consist of two average players and two others aspiring to someday be average. Calderon is in the top 40% offensively and the bottom 2% defensively. Basically, Toronto has a bunch of decent players, but without a star or two it's going to be tough to move beyond 30 wins.
