Wizards Plan Major Offer, Including Potential Equity, For Masai Ujiri

Wizards Plan Major Offer, Including Potential Equity, For Masai Ujiri

"There was another push that kind of moved up and struck our deputy in the face".

"Our deputy pushed the man back and told him he couldn't go onto the court", Kelly alleged.

Footage shows the aftermath of a situation during which Ujiri is being separated from a law enforcement officer.

A spokesman for the Alameda County Sheriff's Office says the deputy asked Ujiri for his credentials as the executive tried to take the court for the trophy presentation.

Kelly said that rather than arrest Ujiri on worldwide television, the department made a decision to take the "high road" and file a misdemeanour complaint to local prosecutors.


Kelly added: "It's not like we were going to chase him down".

Ujiri appears to be holding what may be his credential in his right hand; another video showing Ujiri waiting in the tunnel before the incident also appears to show him holding the credential, USA Today reports.

Ujiri was hired by the Raptors in 2013 as general manager. "Our deputy contacted Mr. Masai Ujiri as he attempted to walk onto the court".

It's fair to ask whether the same heightened levels of scrutiny were applied to the throngs of white people who appeared to be doing the same thing as Ujiri, a man who is practically a legend on the National Basketball Association executive level after he accomplished the improbable by trading away the Raptors' best and fans' favorite player previous year in an unpopular move at the time that ultimately paid off for the team with its first National Basketball Association championship.

A Toronto Raptors executive is being investigated by police over an alleged sideline altercation with a sheriff's deputy in the moments following the team's historic NBA Finals victory, according to multiple media reports. Ray Kelly with the Alameda County Sheriff's Office said in a statement first reported by NBC Bay Area.
