Wizards preparing prolific offer to Ujiri

TORONTO ON- JANUARY 17 Chris Boucher #25 of the Toronto Raptors looks on during the second half of an NBA game against the Phoenix Suns at Scotiabank Arena

That sounds pretty bad, but it may not be the final word on the story, as several witnesses have come to the defense of the Toronto Raptors' general manager.

Just moments after the Toronto Raptors won their first NBA title in franchise history, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Washington Wizards are "preparing a prolific offer" to Raptors' President of Basketball Operations Masai Ujiri.

"A spokesperson for the Alameda County Sheriff's Dept. tells us they WILL be pursuing a misdemeanor criminal charge against Ujiri for the alleged incident".

The video ends as Raptors veteran Kyle Lowry can be seen leading Ujiri on to the court to celebrate the team's 114-110 NBA Finals victory over the Golden State Warriors. The video does not show Ujiri, or anyone else, hitting the officer.

Kelly said that rather than arrest Ujiri on worldwide television, the department made a decision to take the "high road" and file a misdemeanour complaint to local prosecutors.

"He had no credential displayed, and our deputy asked for his credential", Sgt. Ray Kelly said.

"At that point our deputy pushed Mr. Ujiri away again and some National Basketball Association security people and others intervened and he ended up walking onto the court".

"Our deputy pushed the man back and told him he couldn't go onto the court", Kelly alleged.

Ujiri, 48, is also in the hard position of needing to navigate this Wizards courtship as his franchise prepares to make its closing case to free agent Kawhi Leonard about staying with the Raptors on a long-term deal. The officer tried to stop Ujiri from entering the court, as he did not have the proper credentials. Kelly said Masai either didn't have the credentials or didn't show them.

"We would expect more from a team president". Ray Kelly with the Alameda County Sheriff's Office said in a statement first reported by NBC Bay Area.
