‘Iolani graduate Bobby Webster was named general manager of the NBA’s Toronto Raptors this morning.
Webster, 32, is now the youngest GM in the 30-team league. He joined the Raptors in 2013 as vice president of basketball management and strategy and became an assistant GM in 2016. Prior to joining Toronto, he worked in the NBA league office in New York for seven years.
The Oahu-born Webster graduated from ‘Iolani in 2002.
Dan Tolzman and Keith Boyarsky were promoted to assistant GM and vice president in the same Raptors announcement.
“We are excited to promote Bobby, Dan and Keith for their hard work and important contributions to our program,” team president Masai Ujiri said in a release. “They have been invaluable across many aspects of the franchise, making decisions on our salary management, key input on scouting, analytics, strategy, player personnel and team building that has helped us develop a winning culture throughout our organization.”
The Raptors, who have made the playoffs for four straight years, will play the Los Angeles Clippers in two preseason games at the Stan Sheriff Center in October.
