Bryan Colangelo will be out of a job as the Toronto Raptors general manager, but he will remain with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment in a non-basketball capacity, according to the Toronto Star's Doug Smith. Although it is unclear what his job description will entail, Colangelo is expected to have a more "corporate" role with the Raptors' ownership group.
The Raptors, who have been taking their time to shift about their front office staff, have been chasing after Denver Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri to take Colangelo's spot and lead their basketball operations, Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports. Ujiri is a former front office executive who worked under Colangelo as an assistant general manager for two years before leaving in 2010 for the Nuggets.
Colangelo has been in limbo with one year left on his contract. New MLSE executive Tim Leiweke has been mulling over his decision to find new leadership, and this weekend it even appeared likely that Colangelo could remain at his current post.
The former executive of the Phoenix Suns joined the Raptors in 2006.
