07:39 AM ET 04.18 | If it all feels familiar, it's because the Raptors have been here before. You can change the curtains and repaint, but it never works, even if it doesn't work in different ways. This is where the Toronto Raptors live. ... And so the Raptors hit another fork in the road. This franchise rarely picks the right path, but with [Bryan Colangelo's] contract not guaranteed for next season, and with coach Dwane Casey sitting there with one year left on his deal, the sword-swinging men at Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment have one team left where they haven't at least partially cleaned house. Nobody seems to know what they will decide; there are predictions everywhere, but nobody knows.

It's time to spend money wisely on a real GM not one that earned his reputation on his Dad's coattails.

Clean house management wise, let Rudy Gay and Bargnani walk after their contracts expire after this season if they can't trade either away and hand the reigns over to Derozan, Valaciunas and Ross. Best thing this team can do at this time...

That's dumb, Rudy G is the franchise player, he is cool with Lowry and he & DD compliment each other.
Only person that's getting traded is Bargnani, they ain't letting Rudy G walk!
They however need a new coach...SVG,Nate McMillian......
