Bryan Colangelo joined Toronto as its president and general manager Tuesday, ready to leave his imprint on a new team after splitting with a club that didn't offer him a contract extension.
He was introduced a day after he resigned as general manager and president of the Phoenix Suns. He replaces Rob Babcock, who was fired.
Colangelo was the 2005 executive of the year after the Suns' retooled roster won a league-high 62 games. Despite losing Amare Stoudemire to injury and losing regulars Joe Johnson and Quintin Richardson, the Suns lead the Pacific again.
Colangelo's contract with the Suns was reportedly worth $1-million a year. The Raptors reportedly signed him to a multiyear deal worth $3-million a year.
