  1. NBA Season Preview: Toronto Raptors

    Dec 15, 2011, 5:45 AM EDT

    dwane Casey

    Last season: 22-60. It was even uglier than it sounds. Head Coach: Dwane Casey, who will finally get another crack at a head coaching gig. Casey seemed to be unfairly typecast as an assistant over the last few seasons, but the Raptors have brought him in on the strength of a championship-worthy defensive system. Casey’s…

  2. Raptors being sold to Canadian media companies

    The Toronto Raptors may have made as big a move toward respectability as any team in the league last week… no, not signing Rasual Butler. The Raptors are about to have new owners. Which is a very good thing. The Ontario Teachers Pension Plan owns the majority of the Raptors but they are about to…

  3. Report: Raptors close to hiring Stefanski for front office

    The whole thing went down like the plot of some terrible Hugh Grant romantic comedy. It was on. Then it was almost off. But now it is back on again. We will see if Ed Stefanski and the Toronto Raptors can live happily ever after. The two sides are close to a deal to make…

  4. Report: Raptors’ talks with Stefanski ‘stalled’ as Sixers GM looks to Blazers

    Oct 15, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson Press Conference

    Remember how Ed Stefanski was going to be the next Raptors GM, essentially working under Bryan Colangelo in what would largely be an assistant role since Colangelo is the guy who runs the show? And how it was a done deal and all that? Yeah, not so much. Yahoo! Sports reports that the deal has…

  5. Raptors close to hiring 76ers Stefanski as general manager

    Oct 7, 2011, 8:40 PM EDT

    Image (1) Raptors_logo-thumb-250x221-14966.gif for post 2867

    Ed Stefanski, the 76ers general manager who has basically been a lame duck in Philadelphia since the ownership brought in Rod Thon to run the show, is close to landing a new gig. He is in “advanced talks” to become the GM and No. 2 guy with the Toronto Raptors behind team president Bryan Colangelo,…

  6. When the lockout ends, the Raptors need to…

    Toronto Raptors v Denver Nuggets

    This is the latest installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Up next is the Miami Heat. You can also check out our thoughts on other NBA teams here as we work our way through all 30 squads. Last Season: Honestly, it could have been a lot worse. I understand…

  7. Raptors work through first round of front office interviews

    Image (1) Raptors_logo-thumb-250x221-14966.gif for post 2867

    The Toronto Raptors are still looking for a new front office guy to have a fancy title and explain his decisions to Bryan Colangelo, who is shifting roles in the organization. The Raptors are through their first round of interviews and have brought in some name people, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. Philadelphia 76ers…

  8. Raptors GM search finds some candidates, slowly grinds ahead

    Image (1) Raptors_logo-thumb-250x221-14966.gif for post 2867

    Someday the Toronto Raptors are going to hire a GM. That day is not in the near future, but the process is slowly grinding forward. Not that there is any real pressure due to the lockout. Apparently they have got some candidates in mind to join Bryan Colangelo running the Raptors, and eventually they will…

  9. Raptors considering several to fill GM role

    Jul 15, 2011, 9:20 AM EDT

    Bryan Colangelo

    Bryan Colangelo has been calling the shots in Toronto and, well, that hasn’t gone as well as he planned. Now there is pressure on to win. Soon. As part of that President and GM Colangelo is looking to bring in a GM to be part of the Raptors front office, and he has several candidates…

  10. Report: Casey, Frank finalists to be Raptors head coach

    Jun 9, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    While Minnesota and Golden State went the route of hiring television analysts, it looks like Toronto may be going the more traditional route of hiring a top assistant coach who has some head coaching experience. That’s what Doug Smith is reporting in the Toronto Star. According to multiple NBA sources, the Raptors have narrowed the…

  11. How Bryan Colangelo set up the NBA Finals

    Jun 2, 2011, 6:46 PM EDT

    bryan Colangelo

    I don’t have much to add to this article from Sir Charles In Charge’s Andrew Ungvari — I’m just going to recognize that it’s some excellent investigative work and deserves to be read in full. Basically, Ungvari did some homework, and figured out that both Miami and Dallas’ big roster moves can be traced back…

  12. Raptors let go of coach Jay Triano

    Jun 1, 2011, 6:05 PM EDT

    Jay Triano

    You can question if he got as many wins as one could out of the talent given him (which wasn’t much). You can’t question that the Raptors have been an abject disaster defensively for two years running. That has led to Toronto not picking up the option on coach Jay Triano’s contract for next season.…

  13. Bargnani wouldn’t mind playing somewhere warmer

    May 25, 2011, 7:11 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Denver Nuggets

    UPDATE 7:11 pm: Andrea Bargnani released a statement Wednesday to clarify his comments. Here it is (via the fantastic Holly McKenzie at The Score), you can make of it what you will. “I wish to personally clarify and correct an inaccurate portrayal of my words that recently appeared in the media. Much of what I…

  14. Report: GM Colangelo agrees to extension Raptors

    May 17, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT

    bryan Colangelo

    There’s some serious roster renovation that needs to go on in Toronto, but it looks like Bryan Colangelo is going to be the architect. According to the National Post, Colangelo has agreed to an extension in principle to remain as the general manager of the Raptors. The Raptors president and general manager has confirmed to…

  15. Raptors would consider trading Peja Stojakovic again

    Nov 22, 2010, 8:48 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New Orleans Hornets

    Hey, Peja Stojakovic. Before you get totally unpacked and settled in up in Toronto, you may want to hear what team general manager Brian Colangelo told reporters Sunday. Via Ryan McNeill’s twitter: Colangelo also said that the team would look into a trade or buyout if Peja Stojakovic doesn’t like his role here in Toronto.…

  16. Hedo Turkoglu on Toronto: "Something is wrong with that organization"

    Aug 1, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Hedo Turkoglu got his wish — the Raptors traded him out of Toronto to the Phoenix Suns. But on his way out the door Turkoglu keeps taking shots at the Raptors. Classy. Sunday there was a needlessly vindictive series of comments with Turkoglu spoke with FoxSportsArizona.com. “People have to realize something is wrong with that…

  17. Jose Calderon would like to know where he is playing next season

    Jul 30, 2010, 5:02 PM EDT

    Jose Calderon was the best point guard Toronto had last season, he played above average and by the end of the year took the starting job from Jarrett Jack, but Bryan Colangelo is apparently not a fan. Or at least is not a fan of the three years, $29 million Calderon is still owed. Colangelo…

  18. Chris Bosh "put his heart and soul" into Toronto

    Jul 30, 2010, 8:19 AM EDT

    Toronto General Manager Bryan Colangelo said Chris Bosh “checked out” at the end of his time in Toronto, when the Chicago Bulls caught the fading Raptors for the eighth playoff spot. Chris Bosh went on Rogers Sportsnet Thursday and fired back, saying he “put his heart and soul” into the Raptors and that what Colangelo…

  19. Raptors GM Colangelo insinuates Bosh mentally checked out at end of last season

    Jul 27, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Discrediting and ripping the big star that left town is a tradition in Toronto that goes back to the time of Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady. But old traditions are sometimes the most comforting, the thing that is needed. Take for example Raptors General Manager Bryan Colangelo insinuating Chris Bosh was already mentally checking out…

  20. The Raptors reportedly don't want to deal anymore, could cut Bosh's list of suitors in twain

    Jul 3, 2010, 3:52 PM EDT

    On Wednesday, Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo was enamored by the idea of a sign-and-trade for Chris Bosh, and as of today, he seems to have soured on the idea. Don’t you just love free agency? Here’s the report from ESPN.com’s J.A. Adande: Wherever Chris Bosh heads next, he’ll likely have to do so on his…

  21. Raptors' preference for a Chris Bosh sign-and-trade likely means more suitors than ever and a better chance for a Miami supergroup

    Jun 30, 2010, 1:27 PM EDT

    Why should the teams with cap space get to have all the fun? Even if the Cavs don’t want any part of a sign-and-trade for LeBron and Dwyane Wade seems locked into Miami, the Raptors not only appear open to the idea of signing-and-trading Chris Bosh, but Bryan Colangelo actually prefers it. From Marc J.…

  22. Jarrett Jack reportedly wants to be traded, but nobody bothered to tell Jarrett Jack

    Jun 15, 2010, 1:34 PM EDT

    We know Hedo Turkoglu wants out of Toronto, we think Chris Bosh wants out of Toronto, and we thought we knew that Jarrett Jack wanted out of Toronto. It turns out the latter isn’t exactly true, as rumors of Jack’s discontent with the Raptors organization appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely fabricated.…

  23. Rebuilding the Raptors

    Jun 14, 2010, 10:23 AM EDT

    Toronto has become Cleveland north. “Seriously, we’ll totally remake our roster if you’ll stay. What do you want, a real point guard? We’ll get you one. More help inside? We’re on it. Want a couple more alternate uniforms, too? Whatever you ask. Please just don’t leave.” Toronto is in the midst of a massive roster…

  24. Hedo Turkoglu: "I do not want to go back to Toronto"

    May 29, 2010, 9:56 AM EDT

    So there you are, watching Turkish sports television, just like you do every night, when the most hated man in Toronto (well, as much as Canadians can hate anyone) comes on. Hedo Turkoglu. And the man has clearly had it with Toronto. (J.E. Skeets is everywhere, sees and knows all, and he found the show…

  25. Raptors GM Colangelo on the hot seat?

    May 8, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Bryan Colangelo was considered a can’t miss GM when the Raptors hired him, coming from the Suns who he helped build into a playoffs, if not championship, juggernaut. But things haven’t gone so well north of the border, as the team actually seems to have regressed significantly since losing to the Magic in 2008. And…
