03:46 PM ET 05.20 | The Toronto Raptors are preparing to make Denver Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri a "major financial offer" to take over their basketball operations with current team president Bryan Colangelo moving to the business side of the franchise. Such an offer would likely provide Ujiri with a substantial raise upon his current contract with Denver, which is set to expire this summer. The Nuggets will presumably attempt to retain their star executive after he won NBA Executive of the Year this season, but it's clear Toronto ownership will be an aggressive suitor after Ujiri built a contender just years after trading Carmelo Anthony in a franchise-altering move. Colangelo won an Executive of the Year with Toronto in 2007, but couldn't build a consistent winner after numerous questionable moves, including the acquisition of high-salaried star player Rudy Gay this year.
