Colangelo Hopes To Be Retained By Raptors, No Talks Currently
The Toronto Raptors hold a team option on the contract of Bryan Colangelo for the 13-14 NBA season.
The Raptors recently underwent an ownership change and Colangelo said that no discussion about his own future has been discussed.
"This is somewhat of a getting-to-know-you scenario for everyone involved, myself included," said Colangelo. And I would like to think that at the end of the day, they look at my track record and my history and say that I'm the right guy. Time will tell. I have been consistent about one thing: I will always do what's right for the organization. It has nothing to do with me. If there's an opportunity to improve this team, I will do so. There's obviously always a balance in my position between short-term results and long-term results, or short-term outlook and long-term outlook.
"I've proven that, despite all the things that have been happening with the rebuilding of this team simultaneous to the uncertainty with my contract, I always made the right long-term strategic decision with respect to the transactions that were being made or draft picks that were being made."
