https://torontosun.com/sports/baske...wcm/9076ea06-3b78-4741-a61a-55af51d1a522/amp/so Masai’s contract is up.... gotta be closing in...
I still don't see where he's leaving for. We're as wealthy a sports organization as there is in North America, nobody is beating us on dollars. There's maybe 4-5 markets as big or bigger than ours and they're all pretty set on their management structures (or...Dolan).
I hear ya. That all makes perfect sense.
Except for the fact that he’s steadfastly refused to discuss a contract extension with the Raptors, and is still unsigned now.
I could see Masai leaving for a more globally recognized position. Something that might not pay as well but might fulfill more on a global scale.
I still think he stays. Lots of money here to continue to build Giants of Africa.
I see his next contact with flexible opt outs
To leave for another nba team? Not a chance. That is always and should always be at the discretion of the club as to whether or not they allow another team to talk to a member of their organization and to negotiate compensation for letting him out of his contract.
To leave for a non NBA opportunity? He doesnt need an opt out for that. Same as any employment contract at that point. Want to go be the UN envoy for the growth of sports in Africa or some shit? Just give your notice and go.
