Africa Agenda recently published a story about Masai Ujiri, the first African-born GM of a major U.S. sports team. Ujiri recently made news for accepting the NBA Top Executive of the Year award for his work with the Denver Nuggets. Now, there are discussions he may be on his way out.

Though news of why he might leave hasn’t been reported, Raul Martinez, sports anchor at Fox31 News Denver, thinks Ujiri’s current pay as GM has something to do with it.

Martinez is urging Nuggets owner Josh Kroenke to up Ujiri’s salary to keep him in Denver.  Read Martinez’ opinion here. 

What do you think about Ujiri possibly leaving the Nuggets and heading back to the Raptors?
