Raps GM Colangelo hints that Bargnani could go
Coach Casey livid at officials after loss to Hawks

ATLANTA - The Rudy Gay trade wasn’t the only wild and wacky thing that transpired Raptors-wise on Wednesday night in Georgia.

Raptors president/general manager Bryan Colangelo made his clearest statement yet that a divorce between he and Andrea Bargnani is closer than ever and head coach Dwane Casey absolutely went off — justifiably — after yet another terrible call cost his club a game.

We’ll begin with the man Colangelo once aptly termed, the enigma of enigmas.

Bargnani followed up the best season of his career — albeit an injury-plagued one — with a disastrous stretch this year, before getting hurt again.

It has been obvious for some time that it is time for Bargnani to move on, for his sake and for the Raptors, and Colangelo indicated a move could happen soon, though it is not a certainty.

  Yes, new GM made great moves
  No, they will still be a terrible team
  Unsure what to make of it
