Josh Kroenke expects Masai Ujiri to return as general manager of the Denver Nuggets next season.

Ujiri's contract as general manager expires at the end of June.

"For the fans, they should know that Masai wants to be here, and I think he enjoys working for me,” Kroenke said. “I think we make a pretty good team, along with Pete (D'Alessandro, vice president of basketball operations) and Dan (Tolzman, scouting director) and the rest of our scouting staff. So I wouldn't anticipate any issues there."

Kroenke tabbed Ujiri to run the Nuggets in 2010.
