Report: Masai Ujiri Nearly Left Raptors Due to Conflict With Edward Rogers

Edward Rogers reportedly fought plans to keep Masai Ujiri as head of the Toronto Raptors this summer, according to a new scoop by the Toronto Star. Rogers, the former chairman of Rogers Communications and current chairman of the Rogers Control Trust, argued that Ujiri was not worth the amount offered to him—$15 million per year and an incentive structure tied to a future increase in value of the Raptors—and he was convinced that current Raptors general manager Bobby Webster could manage the team by himself. Rogers Communications is a publicly traded company that owns a share of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd. (MLSE), which owns the Raptors.
