TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto Raptors have hired Jeff Weltman as executive vice president of basketball operations.

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.
