From the reports it has been said that Ujiri will be reporting directly to TL and Colangelo will not be influencing decisions basketball decisions...

Oh ok, well that's good news. Even though I wish he was fully out.

Ujiri cleaning house right away. Getting rid of pretty much of the whole front office along with some scouts.

Ed Stefanski, Jim Kelly and Maury Hanks all gone...

the politics is pretty interesting.
i get the feeling masai would be happier if bc weren't in the building and I expect he would like to get rid of casey but won't just yet.

you have to make compromises when you work for a large organization.
it's not just mlse. it is the same on all teams. don nelson was always fighting with marc cuban. the knicks front office is a mess. Does grunwald even have the official title of gm yet? he was interim for more than a year.

i am 100% certain that TL wanted to get rid of BC, but even he couldn't make that happen.

Excellent news, these guys were ok with the ross pick when drummond was still on the board. Clean out all the viruses and cancers even though the biggest one is still around.

This is actually the most very interesting point ; other missed it.

Not sure how involved Ujiri was in the Melo trade ; but I recall he was. He was instrumental in the Nene trade.

So he started with Melo and Nene ( Gay and Bargnani ) and through picks, youth, development and being 3rd guy in a trade ended up with Ike on an expiring contract.

Ujiri must be looking at this roster and feeling a sense of deja-vue.

As too retooling or blow up... I would suspect its more than retooling.

To the points made by others I suspect that only Val, Derozan, and Gay are untouchable.... Gay largely unmovable given the contract.

I suspect the Barges, Klow, Kliza are almost certain moves somewhere somehow largely as they are in expiring contracts or option years. Thye have to be attractive to some teams to get out from under in someway and/or rental players as they are loosing depth at those positions. I suspect Fields, Ross and others are in the mix depending on the size of the deal and the ability to make the numbers work.
