The Washington Wizards are reportedly preparing to offer the architect of the 2019 National Basketball Association champion Toronto Raptors a massive deal that could pay him upwards of $10 million a year.

Wojnarowski reported the deal could approach $10 million annually and "deliver him the opportunity for ownership equity". Besides the lucrative financial deal, the offer would include running Washington's basketball operations and perhaps have a key leadership role in the Monumental Sports and Entertainment company that overseas the Wizards and the NHL's Capitals. Ujiri's vision and decision-making paved the way for the franchise's first championship.

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

Woods finished with 11 straight pars for a 1-under 70 on Thursday, leaving him five shots behind leader Justin Rose . Piercy started fast with an eagle at the par-5 sixth to move to 5 under before double bogeying the eighth hole.

ESPN reported the Wizards have also interviewed Oklahoma City executive Troy Weaver, and former Atlanta and Cleveland GM Danny Ferry.

The Wizards previously were unable to land Tim Connelly from the Denver Nuggets. Will he say yes to the offer or will he stay with the Raptors and gun for another title?

Ujiri has always been an executive held in high esteem, prior to orchestrating the most successful Raptors team in franchise history, he helped lay the foundation for a formidable Denver Nuggets team.
