    Raptors are trying to pursue Masah Ujiri

    Early estimates suggest that the Toronto Raptors would be willing to offer Masai Ujiri an annual salary in excess of $2 million to leave the Denver Nuggets' front office.

    The Nuggets, I'm told, nonetheless remain positive that they'll be able to hang on to Ujiri -- just named the NBA's Executive of the Year for the 2012-13 season -- while knowing they'll obviously have to raise his reported salary of $500,000 to keep him from wanting to leave.

    It should be noted that, as of Monday night, Toronto had yet to secure permission from the Nuggets to officially woo Ujiri. But that hasn't stopped the Nigeria native from being billed as the Raptors' top target after it became apparent that Phil Jackson -- despite his longtime friendship with new Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment president and CEO Tim Leiweke -- was in no rush to embrace Toronto's interest.

    I'm not sure if I want Ujiri. I was really keen on getting Weaver.

    I don't want Ujiri if BC is still around.

    Nuggets were 53-29 the year before Uriji handled the Melo situation.

    Uriji went to a 50 win team, with a HOF coach. He did not make the Nuggets a winning/playoff team, they were already a good team.

    You can argue, he made them better.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    Healthy skepticism is well advised.

    It's probably more to do with the fact that he is a GM that had the balls to trade his star player and get value for him while he could. Something we have seen flutter away a couple of times here. I like what he has done for Denver, but I think I would prefer an experienced basketball mind that would be a first time GM.

    I have no real issue with him. The only thing I dont like is that hes already been affiliated with them. I wonder if they would be pursuing him this hard if he already didnt have ties to the Raptors. Thats what scares me.
