Washington Wizards to be Aggressive in Pursuit for Masai Ujiri

In the midst of the Raptors championship celebration, Adrian Wojnarowski decided to drop one of his infamous Woj bombs. Sources say that the Wizards are preparing to make a lucrative offer- to the man many would consider the best GM in the NBA and the man responsible for the Raptors championship – Masai Ujiri. A long term contract that works out to roughly $10 million a year seems to be what they have in mind for Masai to run their basketball operations.

Masai has done the unthinkable in Toronto, orchestrating an unprecedented turnaround with a franchise that he took over not too long ago. In just six seasons he took the Raptors from a hopeless team with no future to an NBA champion. The Wizards, coming off of a miserable campaign and in need of some competent management are ready to splash the cash on Masai.

Major League Sports Entertainment (MLSE) owner Larry Tanenbaum was asked about the report and had the following to say: “I know Masai. He’s like my son. There is no chance he’s leaving Toronto…I think if you ask Masai he’ll tell you he’s got everything he wants here.”

Masai does have some connection to Washington. His wife, apparently grew up in the D.C. area and Mike Forde, the consultant hired to run the Wizards’ GM search is a mentor to Ujiri, with the two having a close relationship.

Still, now a champion in Toronto and with his legacy firmly cemented in Raptor history, with some even calling for his statue to be erected, it is very difficult to see Masai leaving Toronto.
