Cathal Kelly reports that despite being offered a 500% raise and total control of the organization, Ujiri is stalling, which speaks to just how undesirable the Toronto job may be.
Ujiri earned $500,000 (U.S.) to run the Denver Nuggets last year. The Raptors have offered him somewhere in the region of $2.5 million to do the same thing here.
Denver has reportedly countered with a bump up to something south of a million bucks. Regardless of the sums involved, that’s a lowball. That’s a get-up-and-walk-out-without-countering number. That didn’t happen.
