TORONTO - By themselves the following observations of the two newest executives in the upper management aren’t indicative of anything in particular.

Masai Ujiri, the new president and general manager of basketball operations is a man accustomed to taking his time. If it means a second or third thought gives him a better shot of success, that’s the route he will take.

He’s what you would call a good fisherman. Never in a real hurry and more than willing to wait out the bad times or the slow fishing days if it means latching on to a good one later on.

What Tim Leiweke, the man who identified Ujiri as his No. 1 target and then reeled him in, has shown in his first few weeks on the job is that he has very little interest in meeting anyone else’s agenda. As long as he delivers on what he promises, he’s happy.
