What's the deal? He gets a pass for this season, despite missing the playoffs, for several reasons: Injuries to Jose Calderon, Jermaine O'Neal and then Chris Bosh limited what he had to work with; the trade for Shawn Marion caused a major midseason adjustment; and the team, currently riding a five-game winning streak, has been looking better lately with everyone relatively healthy.

Still, there will be a bench hiring in Toronto, and deposed Grizzlies coach Mark Iavaroni is the top candidate to become Triano's lead assistant. That might seem like an awkward coach-in-waiting situation, but Triano and Iavaroni have been friendly since working together at a European big man camp in Treviso, Italy, several years ago.

Retaining Triano also gives the Raptors a good shot at bringing back Carlos Delfino, who can get out of his Russian team contract for a mere $500,000. The Raptors still hold his restricted free-agent rights.

How does retaing Triano equate to a better shot at bringing back Delfino?

Yes, I wasn't sure about that either. Did they have a special relationship that I was unaware of?

I'm wondering that too... Did Defino and Triano play chess together or something?

I didn't know the buyout was a mere 500K though. That makes holding Delfino's rights a smarter move then I thought.

Starting lineup of... Jose, Carlos, Marion, CB4, Andre would look fairly good.

That would free up the MLE so they could use that to sign both Rasho and Pops. Leaving the bi-annual exception of $2 mil to sign me.

Jay told him at the Olympics that he better come back to the Raptors and Delfino responded, "not unless you're the head coach."

maybe they mean that we'll have more money to spend since we won't have to pay the coach. But I doubt we will be spend less than the luxury cap, so 3-4 millions won't make a difference.
