NEW YORK (AP) -Bryan Colangelo, the Toronto Raptors' president and general manager, was chosen as the NBA's Executive of the Year for the second time Monday.
Colangelo received 20 votes to nine for Houston Rockets general manager Carroll Dawson, who finished second in the voting of 45 league executives. Colangelo also won the award in 2004-05 with the Phoenix Suns, and his father, Jerry, won the award four times.
After 15 years with the Suns, Colangelo joined the Raptors on Feb. 28, 2006 and began overhauling the roster of a franchise that won only 27 games the previous season and missed the playoffs for the fourth straight time.
Building around forward Chris Bosh, Colangelo added Andrea Barganani with the first pick in the 2006 draft and signed Anthony Parker and forward Jorge Garbajosa from Europe. Colangelo also swung trades for guard T.J. Ford, center Rasho Nesterovic and forward Kris Humphries.
The revamped roster tied a franchise record with 47 wins and captured its first Atlantic Division title before losing to the New Jersey Nets in the first round of the playoffs.
The award, presented by The Sporting News, comes after Sam Mitchell was honored as coach of the year last month.
