For the third time in as many summers, Dennis Lindsey’s name has come up in connection with another team’s general manager search.
, the Toronto Raptors are preparing to target Lindsey, who just finished his fourth season as the Spurs’ assistant GM, as a candidats in their front-office hunt.
Bryan Colangelo currently holds dual titles of president and GM in Toronto but, according to the report, is willing to surrender GM duties to the right candidate.
Lindsey is believed to be on that list, along with former New Orleans general manager Jeff Bower and Philadelphia GM Ed Stefanski.
According to the Yahoo! report, Toronto has not scheduled interviews with any candidates, and might not commence with a formal search until next month.
Lindsey has been a hot commodity almost since joining the Spurs prior to the 2007-08 season. In the past two summers, he turned down GM positions in Minnesota and Phoenix.
