Masai Ujiri Named Vice Chairman and President of the Toronto Raptors

The architect of the Toronto Raptors’ 2019 NBA championship team is here to stay.

The Raptors have gotten off to a slow start during this offseason’s free agency period, but that didn’t stop them from making one of the bigger splashes of the summer.

Masai Ujiri’s status with the team moving forward has been under much speculation over the past few months. Those speculations have been put to rest on Thursday as the team announced that it has come to terms with Ujiri on a significant new deal, making Ujiri the team’s vice chairman and president of basketball operations. Not only will Ujiri continue to overlook the Raptors’ basketball and business executives, but he will also continue to play a vital role in the community through his Giants of Africa initiative.

“On the court, our goal is clear: Win. It’s simple: Win. Bring another championship to Toronto,” Ujiri said in a video statement released by the team. “We are united in that mission and nothing else will do. We will bring young talent to this city and continue to build with our unbelievable players. I’ve said it before, and I am saying it again: We will win in Toronto. I’m grateful for the opportunity to lead this team. I love being the leader of the Toronto Raptors and I’m here to stay.”

Ujiri has been with the team since 2013. During his tenure, the Raptors grew from a league laughing stock to an Eastern Conference powerhouse and champion.

The full terms of the deal have not been announced.
