Fan disputes police account of alleged altercation involving Ujiri

Fan disputes police account of alleged altercation involving Ujiri

With the Denver Nuggets, Ujiri won executive of the year honours.

A video shows team officials and other officers intervening and trying to deescalate the situation. Ujiri, the first African general manager in the NBA, founded Giants of Africa to grow the game of basketball by running camps across the continent.

The aftermath of the incident used to be caught on video and reveals an unidentified man searching to de-escalate the venture by holding again two deputies and in most cases pronouncing, "No, no, no".

The Washington Wizards are prepared to make a run at Masai Ujiri, Toronto's president of basketball operations, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. This would also give him a raise of three to four million dollars per year.

The trade paid off in a big way, resulting in a championship, and now it could potentially land Ujiri a massive deal with the Wizards.

Ujiri was reportedly denied access to the court and the team's celebration because he did not have the correct credentials to be allowed on the floor. "Mr. Ujiri made a second, more significant shove and during that shove his arm struck our deputy in the side of the head", Kelly said.

Ujiri was not arrested. The Alameda County District Attorney's Office said it expected to look into the matter sometime next week.

However, if the Wizards do intend to offer Ujiri the job, it is unknown if he would take it.

In a news conference, Ujiri thanked the ownership group of Larry Tanenbaum, George Cope and Edward Rogers before going on to praise the multicultural fan base in Toronto. It's hard to imagine the Raptors letting him go elsewhere and not giving him a pay raise.

Larry Tanenbaum, the owner of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, was asked about the Wizard's interest in Ujiri. "But at the end of the day it is Masai, I don't think he needed to use excessive force", Raskal Montana said. He's like my son.
