Now that he has accepted the job, new Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri is wasting no time getting down to business.

Less than 48 hours after word began to leak that Ujiri was leaving Denver for Toronto, Bryan Colangelo’s replacement made his first official moves.

They were moves that will be felt throughout the organization, but moves that certainly can’t come as a surprise.

Ujiri made the decision to let executive vice-president of basketball operations Ed Stefanski go, along with a handful of scouts, including Jim Kelly who served a variety of scouting positions with the Raptors for the past 18 years.
