Colangelo seeking to bolster Raptors’ front office
Calling all NBA experts: Dust off those resumes. The Raptors are in the market for a new executive.
The only catch, and it’s a doozy, is that experience is required — serious experience. While Bryan Colangelo, the Toronto president and general manager, said the title and role of his new hire is yet to be determined, he acknowledged the ongoing reorganization of his front office could even involve bestowing his GM title on someone else.
“I’m thinking about bringing in a high-level basketball person to strengthen our management team,” Colangelo said. “If I brought someone in and a GM title was part of it, it would be a fairly high-calibre person, probably someone with GM credentials already to their name. It’s all in development right now … I could bring in one, I could bring in several new people.”
This could get very interesting, very quickly …
if Bryan Colangelo is truly serious about making a sound hire for a new GM who, in fact, would be responsible for making the player personnel decisions related to the day-to-day operation of the franchise.
As yours truly has said here plenty of times before …
There has always been a very real opportunity to grow the Raptors franchise into one of the very best in the NBA, if the available resources are marshalled properly, and the right basketball person is selected to steer the ship.
