I think Pritchard and BC are too alike in that they both like to wheel and deal like they're playing X BOX. BC needs somebody with discipline, somebody to talk him off the ledge from time to time. And somebody from the Spurs organization could very well fit that bill. Sign me up for Lindsey. And the thought of bringing Stefanski in makes me ill.

Don't know much about these people, but I hope whoever we sign isn't a clown

So much for inactivity during the NBA lockout — at least for Spurs assistant general manager Dennis Lindsey.

Toronto Raptors president Bryan Colangelo has interviewed four finalists for the Raptors’ vacant general manager position.

Well-connected Yahoo.com NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski reports that sources have told him that Lindsey could have an edge over the three other finalists for the Toronto job. Other remaining candidates include former New Orleans Hornets general manager Jeff Bower, Indiana pro personnel director Kevin Pritchard and Philadelphia general manager Ed Stefanski.

Lindsey also is still in the mix for the vacant Portland general manager job.

His association with the Spurs, R.C. Buford and Gregg Popovich clearly help his candidacy. But he likely will be careful before taking a job just for the opportunity to be an NBA general manager.

Wojnarowski reports that Colangelo would have to delegate some decision-making responsibilities to get Lindsey to take the job. And that’s sometimes easier said than done for a leader like Colangelo who has been actively involved in nearly every front-office decision since taking the Raptors job.

Portland owner Paul Allen has shown a quick trigger with his most recent general managers. Pritchard and Rich Cho both were relieved of their duties as Portland’s general manager in the last 15 months.

It might turn out that Lindsey has a better job working with one of the NBA’s top front offices in San Antonio than running his own team under less than ideal upper management with either of his potential opportunities.

BC is smarter than I gave him credit for.
