Default Raptors Hire CBA Expert Bobby Webster

The Toronto Raptors announced Wednesday they have named Bobby Webster as the club’s Vice President, Basketball Management & Strategy. Webster joins the Raptors after working for the NBA league office in New York for the past seven seasons, most recently in the role of Associate Director, Salary Cap Management.

“I am delighted to have Bobby join our basketball operations team,” said Masai Ujiri, Raptors President and General Manager, Basketball Operations. “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 brings with him a vast working knowledge of the NBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). He was part of the NBA league office team that worked with the NBA Labor Relations Committee to negotiate the most recent CBA with the National Basketball Players Association.

While at the NBA, Webster advised front office personnel from all 30 teams on CBA matters related to salary cap and luxury tax planning, player contract negotiations and trade proposals. He also played a lead role in the NBA league office’s player contract analytics efforts.

In his role with the Raptors, Webster will provide his CBA expertise and take on expanded duties that include scouting, player personnel and roster management.
He's got good experience with the NBA league office, and knows the new CBA line for line. Looks like a great hire.

This guy was the league office's cap specialist - probably the best cap guy on the market. Had a hand in designing the new CBA - big signing this, as far as capologists go.

We didn't already have a cap/CBA specialist? Lol.. I always just assumed we did. BC was completely terrible if that was the case. Seems like a solid hire either way. Here's to hoping he knows every loop hole yet to be exploited.
