Masai Ujiri Rumoured to be Intrigued by Washington Wizards Opening
Now, let’s breathe Toronto Raptor fans, this is considered to be a completely long shot.
No need to panic as of yet.
That being said, there are rumours within league circles that the Washington Wizards have identified Masai Ujiri as a candidate for their general manager opening. Ujiri is currently serving as the team’s president of basketball operations and received a contract extension with the team back in 2016. The Raptors are said to be very unlikely to let Ujiri explore any other job openings.
Ujiri is said to be intrigued by opening and his wife is from the Washington area. The move would provide Ujiri with a grander platform for his Basketball Without Borders program.
Ujiri has been with the Raptors since 2013.
