Per Blake Murphy of Raptors Republic, the Raptors may have decided on their next General Manager but have yet to reveal who exactly it is.
While President Masai Ujiri gets all the publicity for the moves Toronto makes, losing ex-GM Jeff Weltman to the Magic this summer was a big loss. The Raptors are facing a crossroads that will be almost entirely determined by Kyle Lowry’s free agency decision and it’d be helpful for the team to establish their core decision makers before totally shaking things up, if need be. There’s a certain big-name executive who was just let go floating out there, but that would’ve made for extremely quick work by the Raptors and seems unlikely. Expect a formal announcement sometime after the draft.
