Colangelo looking for his replacement?
 
BC- President
Pritchard- GM

????

Quote:

The only catch, and it’s a doozy, is that experience is required — serious experience. While Bryan Colangelo, the Toronto president and general manager, said the title and role of his new hire is yet to be determined, he acknowledged the ongoing reorganization of his front office could even involve bestowing his GM title on someone else.

“I’m thinking about bringing in a high-level basketball person to strengthen our management team,” Colangelo said. “If I brought someone in and a GM title was part of it, it would be a fairly high-calibre person, probably someone with GM credentials already to their name. It’s all in development right now ... I could bring in one, I could bring in several new people.”

Colangelo was speaking on Thursday after CBSSports.com reported that the Raptors were seeking a replacement for Maurizio Gherardini, the vice president of basketball operations whose contract expires June 30. Colangelo disputed the report, saying that while he has yet to address Gherardini’s future — “I’d like to have (Gherardini) back,” he said — the search for new blood isn’t a push to fill a soon-to-be-empty office.

Naw just means someone else will instead when he tells them to.

It sounds great to me. It sounds like the MLSE model is already being blown up. This sounds serious.

If you take this with recent comments about sitting down with everyone and discussing a team philosophy, maybe some real organizational foundations will be laid. With a young and somewhat promising roster, that could be very valuable with each passing year if they can do it right.

I swear he got signed in the past week?:confused2: So he's just going to be president not gm anymore?

BC's decision making still worries me. But it'd be less unnerving if he implements yet another basketball mind to act as a filter for his musings, depending on who that mind belongs to.

komot 05-27-2011 01:05 AM

this would be great if it was true.
he has a great mind for basketball, just not one as a GM.

halphbreedballer 05-27-2011 01:16 AM

This is a great move IMO

BC knows young talent when he see's it, it is the Vets & what there going to do next year that he has trouble with.

I don't think any of us have the knowledge or experience to judge the gm capabilities of a man that has won ecexecutive of the year twice and gets paid millions to do what he does... It's just ignorant on our part. Some people talk like they could clearly do better when in reality they have no idea what is happening.

Just wanted to get that off my chest. :cookie:

I'm just going by track record of BC's career...
He has been much better at drafting players than he has at signing players IMO

Here yes I can agree. But I look at the obvious limitations there is in this market when it comes to signing top free agents.

I love all you armchair professional GM's.

Classic narcissists!

Dutches 05-27-2011 11:17 AM

The title of this thread is seriously misleading.

He's not actually looking for his replacement. He needs another Assistant GM after losing both Ujiri and Maurizio... All he said was that if he found someone who wanted to come in that was heavily experienced he would consider giving up his post.

Really I can't think of anyone who's available that fits the mould for him to give up his GM spot. I still would absolutely love the circus our team would turn in to with Barkley as our GM. But I'm fine with BC keeping his title.

I'm no doctor, but if I go in for an appendectomy, and wake up with my hand sewn to the side of my head, I still know the doctor screwed up.

I couldn't do a better job than BC (and in fact I am a BC supporter), but this reasoning bugs me to no end.
