TORONTO -- The Toronto Raptors have named Jeff Weltman as executive vice president of basketball operations.

Weltman joins the Raptors following five seasons as assistant general manager with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Weltman spent a season in Detroit as the director of basketball administration before moving to Milwaukee in 2008. From 2001-06, Weltman served as the assistant general manager with the Denver Nuggets. He played a role in hiring Ujiri to the Nuggets staff as an international scout.

In Denver, Weltman helped shift the Nuggets from a struggling team with no salary cap flexibility to a consistent playoff threat.

Weltman joined the Nuggets after serving 13 seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers, where he had served as director of player personnel since 1994.

In that role, he oversaw the Clippers scouting department and contributed to other aspects of the club's day-to-day basketball operations.

During his last season (2000-01), the Clippers improved their win total by 16 -- the biggest turnaround in the league.
