Raptors Peddie on BC and rebuilding plan

Quote:
“It was over a year ago that Bryan came up with his strategy of, ‘For the first time, let’s really be patient. Let’s build with youth.’ And since that time, he’s stuck to that. With Bryan, when we re-upped him (with a two-year guarantee in May of 2011), I did a major analysis for the board. He’s got an outstanding draft record. Outstanding. And not perfect, because no general manager is. And so I really chatted with him about stability and building. And so did Wayne Embry and Larry Tanenbaum. And so, in the first couple of months of that strategy, when some attractive veterans came up, Bryan also likes to trade. He swings for the fences. And I would just say, ‘Bryan, be patient. Just remember your strategy.’ And now when you hear Bryan talk, he just doesn’t waver from that.”
