Brian Webster Named Raptors New General Manager
A few weeks after losing General Manager Jeff Weltman to the Orlando Magic, Masai Ujiri and the Toronto Raptors are just about set to name their new GM.
Assistant general manager Bobby Webster is reportedly said to be in line for a promotion, sources tell Sportsnet. One of the fastest rising executives in the league, the 32-year old Webster would become the youngest general manager in the league once the move becomes official.
Webster was originally hired by the Raptors as vice president of basketball management and strategy, and was later named assistant GM prior to the 2016-17 regular season.
A decision that shows the strength and trust built within the Toronto Raptors organization by Ujiri, Webster is expected to be introduced to his new role at some point this week.
