Ryan Wolstat: Teams have also been chasing Bobby Webster for some time. This could open door to Raptors elevating him to GM spot (Masai still in charge)
The Toronto Raptors announced Friday they have signed President Masai Ujiri to a multi-year contract extension and promoted Jeff Weltman to general manager and Bobby Webster to assistant general manager/vice-president basketball strategy. Ujiri will continue to oversee basketball operations as president of the club. “I am grateful to the Board and Mr. Tanenbaum for the opportunity to continue our progress to build the Raptors into one of the top franchises in the NBA,” said Ujiri. “I’m also excited that Jeff and Bobby are being rewarded for their hard work and valuable contributions to our program. My family thanks the NBA, Raptors players and coaches, staff, Raptors fans, the city of Toronto and Canada for this opportunity. Toronto is home for us.”
There’s no guarantees many of his assistants will return with him. Andy Greer, Rex Kalamian and Nick Nurse have all had their names in the rumour mill. Exec Bobby Webster is in demand as well.
Speaking of the Raptors: Bobby Webster, their vice president of basketball management and strategy, is among the candidates interviewing for Milwaukee’s assistant GM job, according to sources familiar with the matter. Webster, a former cap and CBA expert for the league office, is considered a rising front-office star.
The Toronto Raptors named Bobby Webster as vice president of basketball management and strategy, the team announced Wednesday. Webster worked for the NBA in New York for the past seven years. His most recent position was associate director of salary cap management. “I am delighted to have Bobby join our basketball operations team,” Raptors president and general manager Masai Ujiri said. “His skill set will be valuable in a number of areas, and his experience and knowledge of the CBA and its complexities from a League level will be a great asset to the organization.”
