Bobby Webster: Toronto Raptors sign general manager to multi-year extension

The Toronto Raptors announced on Thursday that they have signed general manager Bobby Webster to a multi-year extension.

Per team policy, the terms of the deal were not released.

The 36-year-old was named the Raptors general manager in June of 2017. The following season, the Raptors won a franchise-record 59 games en route to an Atlantic Division title.

Webster played an integral role in the construction of the 2019 NBA championship roster and Toronto has had three consecutive 50-win seasons under Webster's management, winning the division title in each of those seasons.

"I think everyone knows what Bobby brings to our organization: intelligence, poise, and creativity," Raptors president Masai Ujiri said of Webster's extension. "I'm very pleased that our team will continue to benefit from his many skills for seasons to come."

"It's great to be able to continue the work of building the next Raptor championship team - a goal which is part of our organizational DNA," Webster stated. "I'm grateful to Larry Tanenbaum, MLSE ownership and leadership, our great players and staff, and the people of Toronto for making this my home for the past years, and for the future."

Webster has worked his way from the NBA's front office in 2006 to the Raptors' vice president of basketball management and strategy in 2013. From there, he was promoted to assistant general manager before being named general manager in 2017.

He will now serve as the team's general manager for the foreseeable future.
