Of course, Colangelo says his team isn't as bad as people think.

The Toronto Star's Dave Feschuk thinks Colangelo sounded less like a savvy builder of great rosters than a desperate seller of swampland. Four seasons into his sub-.500 tenure, it’s getting harder and harder to buy a word he says.

The Globe and Mail's Michael Grange writes that the Toronto Raptors are going to make a last-ditch effort to re-sign franchise forward Chris Bosh with a pitch that includes not only a maximum contract offer, but also a promise that the club is willing to spend considerable luxury-tax dollars for the first time in an attempt to compete with the top teams in the Eastern Conference.

Toronto Star reporter and blogger extraordinaire Doug Smith writes that Colangelo plans to tug at least a bit on Bosh’s heartstrings in an attempt to convince the five-time NBA all-star to stay with the Raptors.

RaptorBlog's Scott Carefoot proposes a trade that could keep Bosh in Toronto.

Raptors Republic looks at who to keep and who to fire in Raptorland.
