10:30 AM ET 05.18 | It appears Bryan Colangelo's time in Toronto is running out. Sources confirmed a deadline has been set for Monday for Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment to determine whether Colangelo will get his third-year option picked up. That seems a highly unlikely outcome. It???s difficult to imagine Colangelo, a two-time executive of the year closing in on 20 years of experience, will stick around even if given the choice by Monday. New MLSE president/chief executive officer Tim Leiweke has said since taking over three weeks ago that fixing what ails the Raptors would be a priority of his. He has not yet given Colangelo a vote of confidence and a long-term extension certainly isn't coming with Leiweke giving off the perception that Colangelo -- even for just one more year -- is a fallback option if he cannot hire his preferred choice.

True...

It seems that with Toronto (and the Wolves for that matter): Whatever the Expectations, they fail to meet them.

Raptors, T-pups & Bobcats are expected to bring up the rear.

this is the worst news for the lakers- who may have been able to fleece toronto out of rudy/AB for nash/pau

How is that worse for the Lakers? Nash will be retiring in a year or two, Pau will walk away from the Raps, and you would be able to get a SF that is better then World Peace and a back up centre or PF that would let Howard have all the rebounds he wants. In the long run, the Lakers win out
