At the end of a regularly scheduled board of governors meeting, Toronto Raptors president and general manager Bryan Colangelo met with ownership to discuss the state of the Toronto Raptors.

Tom Anselmi, president and chief operating office of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, confirmed that there were “informal discussions about basketball” following the board’s holiday luncheon. Anselmi went on to say that Colangelo still has authority over basketball decision making, although certain moves would continue to be subject to board approval.

Speculation is swirling around the Raptors following the team’s 4-19 start. The Post reported earlier in the week that the status of head coach Dwane Casey has been discussed by the front office, although Colangelo flatly denied that. Casey is the third head coach to serve under Colangelo during his seven-season stint with the Raptors. Colangelo came to the Raptors in February 2006. The Raptors made the playoffs in Colangelo’s first two full seasons on the job, and have missed the playoffs in each of the following four.

Colangelo’s deal with the Raptors lasts through this season. MLSE has the option to exercise the 2013-14 season on that deal. Casey is under contract through next year.
