DENVER – The Denver Nuggets are letting general manager Masai Ujiri, the NBA's Executive of the Year, meet with the Toronto Raptors about their GM vacancy, Yahoo Sports is reporting.
Yahoo reported that Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment CEO Tim Leiweke is prepared to offer Ujiri $3 million annually to return to Toronto, where he was assistant GM for three years before joining the Nuggets in 2010.
Ujiri is one of the league's lowest-paid GMs, making less than $1 million annually in Denver, where he has reshaped the Nuggets into a Western Conference contender following the 2010 trade of Carmelo Anthony.
His contract with the Nuggets expires June 30, and the 42-year-old Ujiri has said he wants to stay in Denver.
The Nuggets didn't return messages Friday from The Associated Press.
