It seems like every day there has been a new rumor about Raptors president and general manager Bryan Colangelo, but on Tuesday, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) president and CEO Tim Leiweke announced his decision to extend Colangelo as team president, but bring in a general manager who will report directly to himself.
“After thorough evaluation and considering all the options, we have concluded that these changes will be in the best interest of the organization,” said Leiweke. “By splitting the roles and having both men report directly to me, we are adding depth to the basketball operations group and giving the Toronto Raptors the best chance of competing for championships in the future. The new GM will inherit a great situation in Toronto, as all of my due diligence around the League indicates that we have a fine, young core and a few key moves will make us a playoff contender next season.”
