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 receives the bulk of the credit for the gutsy offseason trade that sent DeMar DeRozan to the San Antonio Spurs in return for Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard.

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.

Wojnarowski reported the deal could approach $10 million annually and "deliver him the opportunity for ownership equity."

Wizards owner Ted Leonisis is expected to reach out to Toronto ownership "soon" to request a formal meeting with Ujiri to "offer a staggering financial package that would include running the Wizards basketball operations and, perhaps, taking on a larger leadership role in the Monumental Sports and Entertainment company that oversees the Wizards and NHL's Capitals."

Ujiri still has two years left on his contract with the Raptors.
