TORONTO -- The Toronto Raptors have named Bobby Webster as the club's vice president of basketball management and 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," Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri said in a statement. "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 was part of the league office team that worked with the NBA Labor Relations Committee to negotiate the most recent collective bargaining agreement with the National Basketball Players Association.

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.
