Nuggets Reportedly Won’t Match Raptors’ Offer for GM Masai Ujiri

The Toronto Raptors’ offer of approximately $3 million annually over five years for general manager Masai Ujiri is said to be a little too rich for the Denver Nuggets. Ujiri has yet to make a final decision. Per ESPN: “Ujiri, the NBA’s Executive of the Year, is expected to make his decision sometime this week. Sources said it’s a virtual certainty that Denver can’t match Toronto’s offer. Nuggets president Josh Kroenke didn’t want to spoil the day of new Colorado Avalanche coach Patrick Roy, so he deflected any talk about the situation involving his general manager. [...] As president of the Avalanche as well, Kroenke attended Roy’s announcement on Tuesday. He remained mum about Ujiri, saying, ‘There are no Nuggets questions today. Sorry. It’s all about Avalanche.’ Ujiri was assistant GM in Toronto for three years before joining Denver in 2010.”

    It’s not your money. It doesn’t count against the cap, who cares? How is he a Colangelo “disciple” when he started in Denver?
