Negotiations surrounding Masai Ujiri's potential move to the New York Knicks is expected to start with a baseline of two 1st round picks going back to the Toronto Raptors, sources told Ian Begley of SNY.

There was a recent example of an NBA team demanding two 1st round picks when another team inquired about letting an executive out of their contract, SNY also reported. That transaction featured an executive a tier below Ujiri and was not completed.

Ujiri reportedly turned down a massive contract extension from the Raptors last summer.

MLSE chariman Larry Tanenbaum added that Ujiri is "here to stay" with the Raptors.
