TORONTO - Come now, a well thought out move is one thing, but it’s about time to do your business or get off the pot.

Yes, we’re talking about Masai Ujiri’s imminent arrival or — equally likely at this point — his gracious refusal of Toronto’s offer to become the Raptors’ next general manager.

Earlier this week we wrote that we expected Ujiri would take his time with this. We just didn’t think it would take this long.

Ujiri has had Toronto’s offer since last Friday. He had the whole weekend and Monday (U.S. Memorial Day) to think it over, Tuesday to hash it out with his colleagues in the Denver Nuggets front office, even while Patrick Roy was being paraded around Denver as the next Toe Blake.

But then we get to Wednesday when we expect this thing to finally break — and nothing.

Now it’s not all about dropping a nicely gift-wrapped story in the laps of the media covering this event ... although that, too, would be nice.
