    From the moment he took over the moribund Toronto Raptors last month, Tim Leiweke vowed to make some significant changes to return the team to competitiveness in the Eastern Conference.
    It didn't take him long to show everyone that he means business.
    Leiweke lured Masai Ujiri away from the Denver Nuggets on Friday, giving the Raptors the reigning NBA executive of the year and a rising star among the league's front office ranks.
    Yahoo Sports first reported the deal, which is believed to be worth $15 million over five years.
    "We feel very lucky to have Masai in our organization," Leiweke said in a statement issued by the team. "He is a proven judge of talent and we look for him to be a big part of creating a winning atmosphere, leading us to the playoffs and, ultimately, delivering NBA championships for Toronto."
