The Toronto Raptors announced on Wednesday that they have promoted Bobby Webster to the position of general manager. Dan Tolzman has been promoted to assistant general manager and vice president of player personnel, and Keith Boyarsky has been promoted to vice president of basketball strategy and research. Tolzman will continue in his previous role as Raptors 905 general manager, at least for now.
Here’s the team’s release:

These moves, or moves like them, were expected for some time now. I wrote a bit about it here. They are not related to any potential Knicks interest in president Masai Ujiri – see Zarar’s quick take on that here for more – but were necessary after Jeff Weltman left for Orlando.
More on this later after I finish moving, hopefully, though it’s nothing we haven’t touched on plenty already.
