    lol

    Pay him whatever it takes. It is no coincidence that Lieweke and Ujiri kicked off the most successful and most sustained winning in franchise history.

    It hurts to read about TL ... the man came in and immediately changed the culture ... something that usually takes years. Still can't bring myself to edit him out of my avatar. Haha

    But his legacy lives on through Masai .. and I'm ecstatic to hear we're going to lock him up.

    Well let's see if Michael Friisdahl*the man who works behind the scenes will close this deal soon or shit the bed as his first major act.

    MU cemented the foundation for the Raptors franchise success from Dleague team to players development to attracting(retaining) first tier players,has connections throughout the league(and Africa),a smart guy that added a lot of value/culture to a very well managed franchise that came 2 games short of NBA finals.
    If it comes down to how much money to give him,well with lots of money becoming available every year (broadcasting wrights...) if many overrated players in the league got crazy deals this offseason I think MU deserves these mentioned figures.

    Give him the money...it doesn't count against the cap ....he has made a lot of money for MLSE and will continue to. The team is in a good place. Personal opinion...he is the mvm (member) of the franchise.

    He is a great GM and certainly one of the best but certainly not a genius. He's made a handful of mistakes (as does every GM not name Bufford).

    Anyways easily our best GM ever and hopefully they get this done soon.

    Part of me was a tad nervous that Masai would look elsewhere once Lieweke bolted. Glad this extension is imminent.

    Buford makes mistakes too. The Spurs are the best run team in the league but they are definitely not infallible. Their mistakes just don't stand out because even when they make them they keep winning 55 games.

    Perhaps the most obvious one was signing Richard Jefferson to a fat contract a few years ago. That was a pretty gigantic blunder.

    Can only speak to what I've heard second-hand but I think the change in ownership has had more of an impact than the outside world realizes.

    Although it is of course very highly likely, it's certainly not a given and I know it's only been a day or so since hearing this news and that there is still this year to complete the deal if need be. But it's funny to look at how impatient we are with news of DD, Lowry etc to sign when they did pretty much the second they could but this deal isn't finalized yet. Again I'm sure it will happen but really who knows how close it is to being done.
