Raptors sign general manager Bobby Webster to multi-year deal


The Toronto Raptors have signed general manager Bobby Webster to a multi-year extension, the team announced Thursday. Terms of his contract were not announced, per team policy.

Webster joined the Raptors in 2013 as Masai Ujiri’s right-hand man. He was promoted to general manager in 2017 and was influential in constructing the Raptors’ championship team in 2019, most notably on the Kawhi Leonard trade. His previous contract was set to end in 2021 but this gives the Raptors permanency in leadership, as head coach Nick Nurse was also signed to a long-term deal last offseason.

“I think everyone knows what Bobby brings to our organization: intelligence, poise, and creativity,” Raptors president Masai Ujiri said in a statement. “I’m very pleased that our team will continue to benefit from his many skills for seasons to come.”

This leaves Ujiri as the lone remaining question mark in the front office, as his future remains unclear beyond this season. Ujiri is expected to continue having conversations with ownership on his future, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

More to come.
