"Just one less loss (that season) would have put us in a coin toss for (the Portland Trail Blazers') Damian Lillard potentially (he was taken sixth), and that was a need that we had on our team that year, a point guard need," Colangelo said. "So it would have kind of taken us on a whole different route in this rebuilding process, and of course if we had lost a lot more games we would have had better odds to get (the New Orleans Pelicans') Anthony Davis, the big prize that year. We're looking at it, and it didn't work out. There's no assurances (in the lottery). I do like the certainty of the (proposed) process. I think there are some merits to obviously take it to the next extent, except I wish we could start it sooner because there really is some ugly basketball being played." USA Today Sports

Masai Ujiri got a bonus new job out of his most recent move. The Raptors general manager also became a member of the NBA’s competition committee when he took on his role in Toronto and is to attend his first meeting of the powerful policy setting group here Wednesday.

Bryan Colangelo: “I still would say there’s value in Andrea Bargnani as a player. I get the fact that a change of scenery is probably best for all sides. I’ve publicly acknowledged that but, again, the new guy is going to have to decide how to handle it and there are a few options. You can obviously move down different paths with Andrea now."

Bryan Colangelo is still president of the Toronto Raptors, but he's no longer the club's general manager. The Raptors announced Tuesday that while Colangelo's contract as team president is being extended, a new general manager will be hired within the next 30 days. The changes were announced by Tim Leiweke, who is the incoming CEO of team owner Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. Leiweke also said he is moving up his start date from July 1 to June 3.
