Tim Leiweke recently revealed that he could not have a working relationship with Bryan Colangelo.
The Toronto Raptors parted ways with Colangelo and hired Masai Ujiri.
“I didn’t get along with the GM of the basketball team, so we brought in somebody who sees the world the same way I do,” Leiweke said.
The Raptors haven't reached the playoffs since 2008.
