Colangelo Decision Expected This Morning
If the Toronto Raptors' efforts to coax Bryan Colangelo from the Phoenix Suns as their new president and general manager have been successful, they'll likely find out this morning.
Sources in Phoenix said the month-long courtship between the club and the National Basketball Association executive of the year has been completed, and it's up to Colangelo to choose.
"I can't imagine this going on beyond [Monday] morning," a source close to the Suns' executive told The Globe and Mail last night. "I anticipate that there's going to be a resolution."
According to a Raptors source: "It's a real tough decision and it's Bryan's to make, one way or the other."
Sources said that Colangelo was in communication with both Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment chairman Larry Tanenbaum and the Raptors' interim general manager, Wayne Embry, a close family friend of Colangelo, over the weekend as the Suns' imposed deadline of tomorrow looms nearer.
