Wizards To Offer Masai Ujiri $10M Per Year Deal, Ownership Stake

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the deal could reach to as much as $10 million annually.

Leonsis, Wojnarowski writes, could let Ujiri run the Wizards' basketball operations but also take on a leadership role with Monumental Sports and Entertainment, the company that oversees both the Wiz and Washington's National Hockey League franchise.

It's fair to ask whether the same heightened levels of scrutiny were applied to the throngs of white people who appeared to be doing the same thing as Ujiri, a man who is practically a legend on the National Basketball Association executive level after he accomplished the improbable by trading away the Raptors' best and fans' favorite player a year ago in an unpopular move at the time that ultimately paid off for the team with its first National Basketball Association championship. Besides the lucrative financial deal, the offer would include running Washington's basketball operations and perhaps have a key leadership role in the Monumental Sports and Entertainment company that overseas the Wizards and the NHL's Capitals.

Ujiri, who has two years left on his contract, is the architect of the first championship in Raptors history.

Washington has been waiting on Ujiri since mid-May and did not want to make an official run at him until the Raptors' playoff run ended. Time can only tell. But when he tried stopping Masai from getting onto the court, he was met with a slap in the face from the Raptors exec.
