Arrow Globe and Mail: Colangelo looking to improve roster

Quote:
We're talking to a few teams to see if there's anything we can do to improve our basketball club, said Colangelo. We've never sat back and been comfortable. We're always going to compete and improve our levels of competition.

I'm talking about not only a tweak, but in a big deal, we're going to be a buyer, not a seller.

Like Burke, Colangelo is no stranger to big moves. He brought in nine new players prior to the start of the year in an effort to improve upon last season's dismal 33-49 showing. When the results weren't positive early in the season, fans started to worry.

It wasn't just the fans that were worried about the slow start, said Colangelo. We all were. But we kind of knew it was coming ... with so much change, those effects are going to happen.

We had a (tough early) schedule ... it wasn't an excuse, it was a reality. We had the fact that everyone had to acclimate, including the coaching staff, to all the new bodies. But we seem to have found a nice balance. We're competing night in and night out.

I wouldn't say that. I think we're one very good two-way player away from being a very good team.

Indeed, like LeBron, or Wade, or Kobe...

In fact, I'd settle for Joe Johnson.

if the calibre of player is added to push this team farther than it is currently constructed into the playoffs, Bosh will not be happy about his decrease in production.(assuming the guy we add is another guy who is a threat for 15+ any night)







But who am I kidding, the team will just forget about Bargs and/or Hedo again so that Bosh still gets his 20pts.

It's pretty amazing that he would come out and stress being a buyer and allow himself to be compared to Burke. He sounded more guarded on the FAN yesterday. It's hard to see where nothing happens now.

I can't see how nothing happens even before this, if we're gonna win a series in the playoffs, a move needs to be made. The main issue is how big a move?

BC possibly looking for an extension + needing to do something in the playoffs to have a good chance at keeping CB. Little margin for error.

It's hard to argue that Bosh takes too many shots, he shoots the highest percentage except Amir Johnson.

The teams we should be looking at to deal with imo are Washington, GS, Philly, Detroit, Sacremento. Those teams have players that can be had imo.
