I guess giving Landry Fields $20 million for three years isn’t working out too well for the Toronto Raptors (I kid… well not really). The 4-16 team is currently in 13th place in the Eastern Conference and performing well below expectations though some games were tough losses. President and general manager Bryan Colangelo finds it downright ’embarrassing’. Read more after the jump.
On the sun-baked campus of UCLA, with the players and coaches wandering to the bus after a couple of hours of practice, Bryan Colangelo summed up the state of the Raptors with little equivocation.
“This situation is, from all standards, unacceptable,” the team’s president and general manager said. “It’s disappointing, it’s embarrassing but this is where we find ourselves.”
They’ve reached the quarter mark of the NBA regular season with a dismal 4-16 record, they’ve lost nine of their last 10 games.
“It’s obviously something we are addressing, we continue to look and evaluate. Again, 4-16 is unacceptable,” Colangelo said.
The team is having many discussions about what they’re doing wrong and there’s an abundance of trade talk surrounding star forward Andrea Bargnani. Colangelo isn’t quite ready to make that move just yet and is continuing to evaluate the team.
