Raptors president Masai Ujiri accused of assaulting sheriff's deputy in Oakland

Raptors president Masai Ujiri accused of assaulting sheriff's deputy in Oakland

But before the start of the NBA Finals, which the Raptors sealed Thursday night with a 114-110 win over the Golden State Warriors in Game 6, Ujiri did not speak like a man ready to leave Canada. Ujiri, they say, failed to show them the required credential.

The deputy "did not know who the man was and asked for the credential, and that's when he tried to push past our deputy, and our deputy pushed him back", Sgt.

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.

Ujiri pushed and struck a sheriff's deputy in the face after he was denied access to the court and the team's celebration due to a lack of correct credentials, police told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Although an offer worth $10 million annually would place Ujiri among the league's highest-paid executives, The Athletic previously reported that Ujiri's decision likely would not come down to money. NBC's Raj Mathai added in a follow-up post: "Raptors exec (believed to be Team President Masai Ujiri) involved in courtside altercation after the game".

NBC Sports Washington previously reported the Wizards' interest in Ujiri and Thursday night, ESPN reported the team was planning an offer of almost $10 million a year. "We are working with the Oakland Police Department to file a report and contact witnesses and review video".

Some came to the officer's defense.

When Ujiri allegedly pushed the officer again, Kelly says his arm struck the officer in the jaw. As the video continues, Raptors guard Kyle Lowry pulls Ujiri onto the court to celebrate with the team who had just won its first National Basketball Association championship.
