Washington Wizards Moving on From Raptors’ Masai Ujiri

Ever had someone slip into your DMs just for you to read their message and ignore it?

That is the sort of thing that seemed to have happened in the case of the Washington Wizards pursuing Raptors president of basketball operations, Masai Ujiri. Hoping to lure him south of the border to the nation’s capital for approximately $10-million per season, it appears as though Ujiri is uninterested in leaving Toronto any time soon.

“There is no doubt they wanted Masai Ujiri and went after Masai Ujiri, but it’s not going to work out for them so they’re moving on,” said Brian Windhorst.

The Raptors would require a very significant offer if they were ever to even consider releasing Ujiri from his current contract with the team. Under Ujiri’s reign, the Raptors have become a postseason staple and an Eastern Conference powerhouse, en route to the franchise’s first championship win this past playoff run.

Wizards owner Ted Leonsis has denied rumours of his team pursuing the Raptors executive.

The Wizards will now move on with their search after striking out for the second time. The Wizards also pursued Denver Nuggets executive Tim Connelly earlier in the offseason.
