The Toronto Raptors have yet to sign Masai Ujiri to a contract extension, but that is widely expected to be agreed upon in the near future.

Ujiri's current contract expires at the end of the 20-21 season.

“Our fans, they love Masai for all that he’s contributed to the Raptors franchise and to our community and to our country — and our appreciation for him, that can’t be measured,” Larry Tanenbaum, the chairman of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, said in an interview Tuesday. “But it was his and my game plan to secure his management team extension before his own.”

The Raptors have already signed Nick Nurse to an extension and one for Bobby Webster is currently being finalized.

“We have time and we’re going to work through the process in the right time and the right way, I know that for sure,” Tanenbaum said. “He’s so incredibly caring and he’s an important person for the world to understand. It’s not only the Raptors.”
