The SportsXchange

The Toronto Raptors named Bobby Webster as vice president of basketball management and strategy, the team announced Wednesday.

Webster worked for the NBA in New York for the past seven years. His most recent position was associate director of salary cap management.

"I am delighted to have Bobby join our basketball operations team," Raptors president and general manager Masai Ujiri said. "His skill set will be valuable in a number of areas, and his experience and knowledge of the CBA and its complexities from a League level will be a great asset to the organization."

Webster worked with the NBA Labor Relations Committee to negotiate the most recent collective bargaining agreement with the National Basketball Players Association.

With the Raptors, Webster will assume an expanded role that includes scouting, player personnel and roster management.
