During a panel at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, Bryan Colangelo admitted that the Toronto Raptors were attempting to tank during his tenure.
"Admittedly, I will say I tried to tank a few years ago," said Colangelo.
The Raptors finished the 10-11 season with a 22-60 record (.268 winning percentage) and a 23-43 record in 11-12 (.348 winning percentage).
The Raptors drafted Jonas Valanciunas and Terrence Ross with the picks that came as a result of their record.
Colangelo added that during those seasons he was also trying to develop young players.
