Larry Tanenbaum: No Team Can Talk To Masai Ujiri, He's Here To Stay 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Dec 11, 2019 1:58 am

Larry Tanenbaum said he is not worried about another team trying to sign Masai Ujiri away from the Toronto Raptors.


Ujiri's contract expires following the 20-21 season.


The New York Knicks are believed to have interest in Ujiri.


“We hope so,” Tanenbaum said earlier this week. “We haven’t talked (about an extension) at this point in time, but if you ask him, his intentions are pretty clear.”


Tanenbaum was asked why a contract extension hasn't been offered.


“Masai has a contract that goes for another two years — this season and next season — so there’s really no need at this point (to re-sign him),” he said.


Tanenbaum understands why rival teams have interest in Ujiri.


“He is the best,” said Tanenbaum. “But no team can come to talk to him. That’s tampering. And every owner knows that. Masai is here to stay.”

This is the right approach. Take a hard line and stick to it... while he’s at it, Tannenbaum ought to pony up for what ever and whom ever Masai sees fit invest in

People can't still be this naive, right?

If Masai wants to talk to someone, you best believe he'll talk to that person. You better hand him a blank check--or he gone.

Mr Larry’s mind is too simply, sometimes naive

For you bias Americans
1. Canada is a 10x better place to live.
2. We treat our Sports stars yes he’s a star like kings
3. Canada would more likely make Massai Prime Minister than let him go to the Knicks

The End.

" Masai is here to stay"

This last line sounds really problematic. It implies ownership.
I can see it being the reason that he leaves. This idiot may've messed up.

Really? That one line will be the reason Masai decides to leave? Oh boy.
