The only thing Raptors can pull right now is a new management team

I was starting to worry that Weltman failed his physical and the signing would be lost. Thank you Reliable Jeff B; the official hiring of Jeff Weltman could have been posted and lost in the "Ujiri to Hire Weltman" thread - but because of your efforts, this news has not gone unnoticed.

Gack. I'm getting overwhelmed by the business double-speak.

Is Executive Vice President the same thing as Vice President?

Who is the President now the BC quit (Leiweke?) and are they going to stay at that position?

I thought this guy was being hired because of his scouting acumen but it sounds like he's being put into more of a marketing job?

Ujiri is and always has been the President of Basketball Operations. BC had a made up job - his limited responsibilities will probably just go to Leiweke and Anselmi.

The actual words don't matter much with titles. Ujiri's in charge. Weltman is his assistant.

Look at their draft record in the mid-late 1st round the past 5 years or so and you should be impressed.

Weltman makes it sound like the core is here to stay, aka no tanking. Is that just me hearing things I want to hear? Or does anyone else feel the same?

Yeah I think they're indicating we're not tanking. If the right deal comes on the table we'll take it, but not throwing players away

Yea yea, you disagree cause you think tanking is the only way for championship. And you like to think that, cause you're arrogant and think your way is the only way.
Championship is still the goal. They know it's not going to be this season however.

What do you expect from the management team, to say publicly that our goal is to trade all our good players and tank? Ainge recently said that Boston is too proud to tank and then proceeded to trade his two best players for picks. And I wouldn't be surprised if rondo will take a reaaaaly long time to recover from his ACL injury.
