NBA Board of Governors re-elected Larry Tanenbaum of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. CBC Sports

Toronto Raptors governor Larry Tanenbaum has been unanimously re-elected as chairman of the NBA Board of Governors.

Tanenbaum, the longtime chairman of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, became the first Canadian owner to serve as chairman of the board, when he was first elected to the position in 2017.

The Toronto native has served on the NBA advisory/finance committee since 2008 and was part of the planning committee from 2000–14.

He also had tenures on several other committees including Labor Relations and Extension/Reorganization.

Tanenbaum has been governor of the Raptors since 1998 and holds the same title with the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs and Major League Soccer’s Toronto FC.

He has seen the Raptors make the playoffs in eight of their last nine seasons and win their first NBA title in 2019.

“I am honored to continue to serve as Chairman of the NBA Board of Governors to help lead this great league,” Tanenbaum said in a statement.

“I am grateful for the valuable support of my fellow governors and I look forward to working with each of them, and the Commissioner [Adam] Silver with the league office staff as we continue to grow the NBA’s influence in the game of basketball and in our communities.”
