So am I reading too much into this or is Embry going to need to endorse BC's moves from now on?
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

The two tweets I posted before, plus response from a local guy:

Ken Berger ‏@KBergCBS
As Raptors struggle, Bryan Colangelo summoned his senior advisor, Wayne Embry, to Toronto this week to meet with ownership, sources say.


Ken Berger ‏@KBergCBS
The meeting involving Embry and the board went well, according to a league source briefed on it. But 4-19 Raptors evaluating options.

To less urgent matters: The two things @KBergCBS tweeted are approximately what I've heard. Ownership's mindset is the big unknown.


Eric Koreen ‏@ekoreen
Nobody has seen how the new MLSE works in such a crisis situation. Anybody who says they know is making a mighty leap.


Ken Berger ‏@KBergCBS
Trade scenarios involving Andrea Bargnani and/or Jose Calderon are on hold with Bargnani and starting PG Kyle Lowry injured, source said.

Somehow I got a feeling BC wanted to hide behind Embry's back.

Not sure what kind of owner it is, doesn't seem to care about their businesses.
Ticket price are discounted, perhaps they don't want to make profit in the future?

Buzz in league circles had Embry summoned by ownership, meaning trouble for Colangelo. But Colangelo sought Embry's counsel, sources said.

I'm sorry, but you have the most confusing posts. Is there even a point you're trying to make?

At least BC was smart enough to jump ahead of the ownership.

Embry won't sell out the Colangelos. He probably went to bat for him. They're burying Bargs to buy them some time on the trade market.

Since I thought good leaders will indicate the business direction. The "Ownership's mindset is the big unknown" seems to be that they either have no leadership to provide direction, or simply has no direction. If they care about their business, they should have some discussions already.

I mean if I bought something and care about it, I wouldn't throw it aside and just let it lost its value. Maybe it is just me.

So Embry is now in charge of advising both BC and the board on BC. If Embry did go to bat for BC than how long before the fireEmbry.com site appears.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

Embry wont put Collangelo in a bad spot, he was the hookup that brought him in. Then again, he was the guy that gave the go ahead to fire Babcock too. I say the outcome of the meeting is that this rebuilding crap is not for a town like toronto and they are going to go competitive with vets.

The last time Embry was summoned to oversee a roster re-shuffling, he dumped Jalen Roses's $15 million salary on the Knicks.

No, he won't.....the Colangelos still hold on to his secret weight loss formula.

He gave away a first round pick that could have landed the Raps Rondo or Lowry in 2006. Probably done with BCs blessing given how close he was to coming on board. First of many short-sighted moves. And one that Babcock had been involved in negotiating but smartly would not give in on the pick.

The honest to god truth is that he tells good stories and lets the board members hear all about players they used to watch when they were young. They think having a HOF guy associated with the team somehow gives their FO respect, but it doesn't.

It was the exact same with McCloskey who was around forever until he decided to leave the club. Babs brought in Embry to be the experienced voice to help guide him. When Peddie ordered Embry to report directly to him that was the clearest sign that Babs was on his way out. I even spoke with Babs about that and tried to get him to make a proactive move internally but politics was just not his thing. Personally I thought it was a scumbag move by Embry who should have been more loyal to Babs.
