Masai Ujiri

51. Masai Ujiri’s last four 1st round picks are Delon Wright at 20, Jakob Poeltl at nine, Pascal Siakam at 27, and OG Anunoby at 23. Going 4-4 on players who are at starter or near-starter-quality, in the mid-late first round is absurd.

53. The Raptors have won at least 48 games since Masai Ujiri became team president.

54. Masai Ujiri won executive of the year while with the Denver Nuggets but has never won while with the Toronto Raptors
