Masai Ujiri has signed a “significant” deal to remain president of the National Basketball Association’s Toronto Raptors.
Ujiri, who was the architect behind the roster of the Raptors’ 2019 NBA championship team, will also assume the title of vice chairman.
According to ESPN, Ujiri rejected the overtures from several professional sports organizations beyond the NBA to remain with the Raptors.
Ujiri arrived at Toronto in 2013 as general manager following a stint with the Denver Nuggets, and the Raptors reached the postseason every year since until the 2020-21 season. His contract was due to expire this summer.
“I’ve said it before, and I am saying it again.
We will win in Toronto.”
