The Toronto Raptors announced a multi-year contract extension Thursday for general manager Bobby Webster.

Terms were not disclosed.

Webster, 36, was promoted to GM in June 2017 and helped put together the roster that brought home Toronto’s first NBA championship in 2018-19.

“I think everyone knows what Bobby brings to our organization: intelligence, poise, and creativity,” Raptors President Masai Ujiri said in a news release. “I’m very pleased that our team will continue to benefit from his many skills for seasons to come.”

Toronto has won six Atlantic Division titles since Webster joined the front office in June 2013. His previous roles with the Raptors included assistant general manager and vice president of basketball management and strategy.

“It’s great to be able to continue the work of building the next Raptor championship team — a goal which is part of our organizational DNA,” Webster said. “I’m grateful to Larry Tanenbaum, MLSE ownership and leadership, our great players and staff, and the people of Toronto for making this my home for the past years, and for the future.”

Webster worked in the NBA league offices from 2006-13.
