Jeff Weltman Rumors
Jeff Weltman, who was a finalist for the Phoenix GM job that went to Ryan McDonough, is now with Toronto and is expected to get a call, league sources say. His father, Harry Weltman, was GM of the Cavs in the 1980s. David Morway was part of the front office that built the Pacers into an Eastern Conference power. Now in Milwaukee, Morway has been a candidate for several GM positions.
Weltman will receive a significant bump in pay in his new job with the Raptors. Some NBA officials claim Weltman will be paid more than $1 million a year for the next five years. That is almost double the amount most assistant GMs are paid.
The Toronto Raptors announced Tuesday NBA-veteran front office executive Jeff Weltman has been named Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations. Weltman joins the Raptors following five seasons as assistant general manager with the Milwaukee Bucks.
