Colangelo will try to re-sign Bosh after adding more pieces
 
Quote:

The roster makeover also enables the Raptors to make a case to Bosh for a contract extension later this summer, but not until the rest of the pieces are in place.

I don't want [Bosh] to read the book before it's published, Colangelo said.

I don't think Bosh will sign early. I am sure he may be feeling the pressure because of the forecasted lower salary cap for next year.
But as a business man he said "I put my self in a position to be a free agent in the summer of '10 etc" so he is going to play that card.
May make his mind up earlier but I don't think he will sign earlier.

REAL GM: BC - More Roster Moves are Coming.

Quote:

Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo has indicated that more moves are in the horizon.

"Stay tuned because there will be more changes to the roster," Colangelo said Thursday as the team introduced Hedo Turkoglu. "Things are falling in line quite nicely for us."

Sorry if this has already been posted somewhere. I missed the press conference and just read it this morning.

According to the article, Steve Fruitman was the brain behind this trade and BC was the guy doing the phone calls (8 of them at the same time). Kudos.

I say BC stands pat and lets the Raps go on a 20-5 start and waits for Bosh to come to him.

Raptorman- So Bosh can sign an extension during the season as well???:confused2:

Both business and career wise told us he should sign an extension. Right now I don't see him getting a max deal

We can't give him a max deal. We can add one more year and give him better raises, which means 30M more.

Ah...no... "stand pat" means to do nothing. In other words, just wait until the season starts. If the team is as good as BC thinks, Bosh will be knocking on his door.
