01:17 PM ET 05.12 | As early as Monday, the Toronto Raptors could announce that general manager Bryan Colangelo's one-year team option will be picked up. Rumors hinted that new Maples Leaf Sports and Entertainment executive Tim Leiweke could seek out former Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson to take over the Raptors' front office duties, but reports indicate that the team will allow Colangelo to ride out his ongoing process of building a perennial playoff contendor. Colangelo joined the Raptors in 2006, but after finding initial success, the team has failed to make the postseason in the last five seasons. It's expected that Colangelo will retain current head coach Dwane Casey, but there's a good chance he revamps the staff behind Casey.
