A Rare Raptor CoupPublished by Toronto Mike on February 28, 2006 @ 08:32 in Toronto Raptors
Phoenix Suns president and general manager Bryan Colangelo resigned yesterday and joined the Toronto Raptors as president and general manager today. For the first time in the history of the Raptors, there's experience and proven success running the show.
Colangelo was the NBA's 2005 executive of the year after the Suns won a league-high 62 games. The Suns were 29 game winners before he retooled the line up and brought them to the conference final. He's only 40 but he's already spent 17 years with the Suns, the past 11 as general manager.
I'll bet this guy has a vision. I'll bet this guy has a plan. The hiring of Colangelo is indeed a rare Raptors coup.
