Raptors GM Bobby Webster expressed that restricted free agent Fred VanVleet remains the highest priority for the team during the offseason.
"He’s a huge priority," said Webster. "I don’t want to get fined here, we’re a little limited in what we can say, but we love Freddy and he knows that. He is our highest priority." VanVleet played spectacularly off of the bench for the Raptors in his second season averaging 8.6 points, 3.2 assists and 2.4 rebounds while playing 20 minutes per game. VanVleet is headed into this third season and should continue being the Raptors' most effective bench player in limited minutes, but as long as he is backing up Kyle Lowry he should only be looked at in deeper leagues.
