The team did not confirm the terms of Ujiri's deal or the title he would assume immediately.

Ujiri led the Raptors to the NBA title in 2019 following a series of bold moves, including the trade of star DeMar DeRozan for Kawhi Leonard and the previous summer's decision to fire coach Dwane Casey and replace him with Nick Nurse.

The Raptors made the playoffs seven consecutive seasons under Ujiri before missing the postseason this season due to COVID-19 restrictions that required them to play home games in Tampa, Fla.

Ujiri was hired as an assistant general manager in Toronto in 2008 before becoming the general manager of the Denver Nuggets. He was rehired by the Raptors in May 2013 to run basketball operations.
