    Fast is good. He did say within a month. It's a good sign that Ujiri wants to do quickly as well. Image Ujiri actually did come back to Toronto. I think we'd be the team that their GM gets booed on the road(in Denver)

    People shouldn't get too excited about what this guy says. It's still just all spin. Just because he's taking a different tone/view than BC, does not make him more capable. Think of it like people from different political parties speaking.

    At this point, I will only be impressed with results from management/ownership. So far, in limited time, I'm not that impressed. The BC situation hasn't been handled too well. And while they have some nice candidates for the GM opening, there's still a lot of uncertainty because their top targets all could stay with their current teams...though one would think someone from Weaver, Ujiri, Pritchard would be willing to walk. Still though, we're about a month from the draft, so a GM's gotta be in place soon to start evaluating the roster and possible targets for transaction season.

    It better be fast. A lot of groundwork for trades happens leading up to the draft.

    @WolstatSun: Cart before horse here, but wonder if Raptors trade into draft to land Nigerian-born Giannis Antetokoumpo, who Masai is very familiar with

    I dont think Pritchard gets to talk to anyone re a lateral move while his team is in the playoffs which probably means Ujiri gets it if he wants it...doubt that Denver will match an above market offer. In anycase Ujiri can just say he's leaving regardless...seems they have been playing hardaball with him on a new deal until now.

    Giannis is actually NOT Nigerian born. It's one of the emphatic points crazy ol' Basilis was trying to make in another thread that was actually 100% true.

    I mean, I assume since he's Nigerian-descended that Ujiri has likely taken some extra amount of interest in him. But I honestly don't remember reading anything associating them in any way. So if there is any sort of real evidence of some connection between them, I'd like to see it.

    Wonder if the same assumption is also not made with oft mentioned influence of Ujiri with the drafting of Solomon Alabi.

    Yep. His first major decision (i.e. to get rid of Colangelo) resulted in him.... not really being able to get rid of Colangelo. He was clearly forced to acquiesce to other's wishes by keeping BC on in any capacity. Just listen to the guy..... This does not necessarily bode well.

    Remember, BC said a lot of the same things 7 years ago. Give the new ownership group a couple of years and let's see what they do with a new management team in charge of the Raps. Leiweke talks a great game. So did a lot of guys.

    Remember the time that Pritchard signed Hedo to an offer sheet and BC outbidded him?

    THEY COULD WORK TOGETHER!

    This good news. Earlier this week this dude was saying that there was no way Denver would lose Ujiri.

    im pretty sure nobody actually remembers "the talk", only the actions. and when colangelo came in, we made playoffs twice (granted in a garbage eastern conference).

    and i still dont understand your fascination with colangelo's new position. hes gone. hes not doing anything for the roster. why do you still care?

    Looks like the offer has been upped to $3M per for Ujiri. That's... a lot of money. He'll be making more than some of the players!

    Did Leiweke hold on to BC's ear while speaking with Ujiri at the meeting? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Lets hope this is final by Monday cause right now Raps are standing still, need the new GM to get in get situated and start looking at the roster and what he wants to do.... Cause after this head coach needs to be addressed.... Seriously cant stress the importance of this new GM coming in fast.
