Current Toronto Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo could know as soon as Monday whether or not the team picks up the option on his contract, and signs indicate the team will give him a final year to see his vision through, reports the Toronto Sun.
Tim Leiweke, the new executive of the Raptors' ownership group Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, is expected to allow Colangelo to continue the process of building the Raptors back into a playoff contender after missing out on the last five postseasons.
Colangelo, who joined the Raptors from the Phoenix Suns in 2006, won executive of the year in 2007 but after helping the team to the playoffs in his first two years with the team, has struggled to build a consistent team. His saving grace might have been the trade of the year in 2012-13, a deal that gave Toronto swingman Rudy Gay.
If the news is as expected and Colangelo is retained, it is expected that Toronto will keep coach Dwane Casey, as Colangelo promised -- assuming his own return -- at the end of the season. However, the team is expected to make one or many changes to Casey's coaching staff. The Toronto Sun reported that the staff struggled to connect with the players.
