The newest members of the 6ix family are Aron Baynes and Alex Len, and when asked about what drew him to these selected players, Ujiri said they've been on the team's radar for some time now. 

"We've followed them for a while whether it's a draft or free agency. I've done a lot of work on these guys," he said. 

Ujiri also took some time to answer questions on Ibaka's departure from the team and said that he shared a special bond with the player that led the team to a championship victory.

"We have to look at sometimes a bigger picture with the team ... We tried to get to a certain place but I think at the end Serge got comfortable doing something else," he said.
