The Nuggets will hire Masai Ujiri to run their new front office, as general manager, according to an NBA source.
Ujiri has spent the past three seasons at the Toronto Raptors’ assistant general manager.
the 39-year-old Ujiri previously worked for the Nuggets as an international scout. Nigerian-born and raised, Ujiri played at Montana State and in five European countries before joining the Nuggets as a scout.
