This offseason, the Toronto Raptors were able to bring re-sign Masai Ujiri, the executive who helped spearhead the masterful 2019 championship run, in tandem with Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry, and a period of success unlike anything the franchise had seen up until that point.
Ujiri, who had been serving as the president of basketball operations, was also given the term of vice-chairman, showing that MLSE ownership was not only committed to making sure that Ujiri was brought back, but also ensuring that he was properly rewarded and compensated for all that he has done for this franchise.
Michael Grange of Sportsnet is reporting that Ujiri’s new contract extension, the length of which remains unknown, will pay him $15 million per year, making him one of the most highly compensated executives in the game.
No matter how good a team may be on the court, dysfunction at the top will almost always trickle down to the lowest ranks of the organizational ladder. Getting Ujiri back in a place of prominence should have been the top priority this offseason, and the organization managed to check that box.
