A lot of the problem with colangelo was he looked for cheap depth for the bench and roaster, and didnt have many assets to work with, and continued to overpay roll players. Yes colangelo was a 2 time executive of the year, but the only reason why he won executive of the year the first time was because steve nash's loyalty to the suns organization allowed him to bring in nash. There were a lot of pieces to work with for toronto when he came in in 2006, and a 1st round draft pick.
When you look at the moves done, Colangelo didn't do a whole lot to keep chris bosh happy in toronto, with all the bums he's signed and garbage he's taken from trades, the team didnt look better. I originally though colangelo, as of late, has been making better moves. The rudy gay trade, though for an overpaid allstar, it was a good trade, a good value for caldy+ davis. This team is bound to make the playoffs next year, with more experience coaching with casey, and with the removal of bargnani + shedding cap from kleiza contract.
overall, Colangelo is doing better as of late, he wasnt doing a good job before, but lately, he's been making better moves. I would've like to let him fix his mess, than have someone else come in, and take credit for it. Though, I rather miss the playoffs and hope stern helps out Jerry colangelo and his family, by allowing the raptors to rigg the lottery and get wiggins. Wiggins, canadian born, playing for the raptors? Think of the revenue and publicity! It would be just like when (patrick ewing was drafted 1st overall for the knicks) and like lebron for cleveland, and rose for chicago.
