Masai Ujiri Open To Trading Before Deadline
Masai Ujiri has not engaged in serious trade discussions as of yet but is willing to listen to teams as the deadline nears.
ďIíll be right here (waving his cellphone) waiting and weíll see what happens,Ē Ujiri said. ďI never know what to expect. Sometimes itís quiet until the last minute. Sometimes itís busy. As far as our team, I think the team has played well. They have done well with the platform so keep trying to grow.
ďThese guys are taking the opportunity and I said we would give them the platform, and if they continue to grow weíll see how we do but we havenít done anything yet. I donít want to call out the conference, I canít do that, but itís the measuring stick and I think we have to keep that in mind.Ē
Ujiri's Toronto Raptors are 28-24 this season, good for third place in the Eastern Conference standings.
