Despite the prolonged contract negotiation of vice-president and Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri, the real behind-the-scenes drama has reportedly been revealed.

The Toronto Star exclusively reported on Monday that Edward Rogers, former president of Rogers Communications Inc., had “actively fought the plan” to re-sign Ujiri, believing it was not worth the amount offered.

Rogers Communications Inc. owns 37.5 percent of the Raptors organization.

In the latest episode of the CBC Sports video series Bring it inside, host Morgan Campbell is joined by panelists Meghan McPeak and Dave Zirin to discuss what Ujiri has meant for the Raptors, as well as to take a closer look at the deep-rooted issues that led to Rogers’ stance on Ujiri.
