Sheriff's office investigating incident between Masai Ujiri, deputy after Raptors win

Raptors president of operations Masai Ujiri is being investigated by the Alameda County Sheriff's Office over a postgame incident where he allegedly struck and pushed a sheriff's deputy at Oracle Arena in an effort to gain access to the court to celebrate the Raptors' NBA title, Sgt. Ray Kelly with the Alameda County Sheriff's Office confirmed to NBC Sports Washington Friday morning.

According to Kelly, the sheriff's deputy blocked Ujiri from the court because he did not display the appropriate credentials. 

Kelly said the sheriff's deputy was following the strict security protocol and didn't recognize Ujiri.

"We were following the policy that they asked us to," Kelly said.

A video from NBC Bay Area shows a man standing in between a Raptors' executive and deputies, with his arms outstretched.

Eventually, the executive is guided through the crowd to the court by Kyle Lowry and proceeds to celebrate with the team.

Kelly said once the sheriff's deputies realized who Ujiri was, they opted to let him go celebrate but are gathering evidence to submit a complaint to the local District Attorney.

"We opted to take the high road and not create a bigger scene," he said. 

A Raptors spokesperson told NBC Sports Washington that the incident “is being looked at, and we are cooperating with authorities. We look forward to resolving the situation.”

Reports of the incident first surfaced in the early morning hours after the Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals for the title.

Ujiri was seen on television in the postgame celebration with his team and did an on-camera interview with ESPN's Doris Burke.

The Washington Wizards, according to reports from NBC Sports Washington's Ben Standig, are preparing to make an offer to Ujiri to try to lure him to Washington to take the top job in the Wizards' front office. 

According to Standig, the Wizards offer could include everything from an ownership stake in Monumental, or an eight-figure salary.
