  • Marc Gasol

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Warriors are among the Western Conference teams taking a look at free agent center Marc Gasol.

    Gasol probably still has just enough in his tank to bolster a championship contender. He already said that he will only sign with one. The Warriors make for an interesting destination for the big man, who might just end up with a limited role in the regular season, with the team likely preserving him for the playoffs.

    Serge Ibaka has agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Clippers worth $19 million, per Shams Charania of the Athletic.

    This is a huge get for the Clippers, who were reeling from the departure of Montrezl Harrell to the Lakers. Ibaka is a great stretch five option who is able to spread out the defense as well as provide some interior protection of the rim. He's got championship experience and knows how to win. The Clippers are still playing catch-up to the Lakers' FA moves and are still in search of an upgrade at point guard.

    According to Marc Stein, the Clippers are also in the hunt to sign another free agent big man, eyeing the likes of Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol.

    As per Stein, it seems that Gasol is emerging as the more realistic target, given the aggressive chase the Raptors and Nets are doing in pursuit of Ibaka's services this season. Stay tuned. More FA frenzy coming your way. Soon.

  • Fred VanVleet

    Shams Charania is reporting that Fred VanVleet has agreed to a four-year, $85 million contract to remain with the Raptors.

    One of the big names is off the board now with the VanVleet signing and many teams will now be going to plan-B. FVV officially entered his prime last season producing top-30 fantasy value as the Raptors retain one of the key pieces of their 53-19 team last season.

  • Marc Gasol

    According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, Marc Gasol has emerged as a free agent target for the NBA Champion Lakers in the wake of Dwight Howard's agreement with the Sixers.

    Only an hour ago, Howard tweeted a re-commitment to the Lakers and the city of Los Angeles, only to take it down minutes later. Now, after a reported agreement between Howard and the Sixers, the Lakers are focusing on another veteran center in Gasol. The Raptors have seemingly moved on from the 12-year NBA vet and the Lakers seem like as good a spot as any for Gasol. After all, the Lakers traded Marc's draft rights to the Grizzlies for his brother, Pau Gasol, whom they employed for many fruitful years afterward.

  • Serge Ibaka

    Serge Ibaka has received significant interest from as many as 10 teams already in free agency, according to Michael Grange of Sportsnet.

    Some of those offers are apparently checking in above the mid-level exception, too. Ibaka has a great game for the modern NBA and is playoff-tested, so it's no shock that he's a popular target. The Raptors, Lakers, Heat, Nets, Clippers and Blazers are among the teams that have been linked to him in the run up to free agency so Ibaka should be able to take his pick from a deep pool of competitive, appealing offers.

    The Raptors are believed to be a strong suitor for Serge Ibaka, per Ian Begley of SNY.

    Kevin Durant's brother caused a stir earlier today when he commented on Instagram that Ibaka was heading to Brooklyn. Seriously. The big man is attracting tons of attention from the league's top teams but said during the season that he'd love to stay in Toronto. We'll see if another team can swoop in while the Raps are focused on Fred VanVleet.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors are still believed to be the frontrunners for Fred VanVleet, per TSN's Josh Lewenberg.

    VanVleet will reportedly take his time and listen to pitches throughout tonight and possibly tomorrow, and it's no surprise that he'll take time with such a big decision. Toronto is widely expected to retain FVV, who could be taking the torch from Kyle Lowry within the next year or two, but the Raptors may not end up being the highest bidder. The Knicks stand out as the biggest competition and VanVleet will ultimately have to weigh whether the extra money is worth leaving the environment in Toronto that has helped him become an NBA success. He certainly deserves whatever raise is headed his way no matter who's signing the checks.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet will meet with multiple teams, per Shams Charania.

    There's obvious interest from the Raptors, who have said that keeping FVV is their top priority. The Knicks, Pistons and Suns were previously identified as possible suitors but the Suns are probably off that list after acquiring Chris Paul. While Charania reports a "robust market" for VanVleet, there simply aren't many teams with the space to sign him, and those that do may not have as much to offer in terms of winning and culture as the incumbent Raptors. We'll see where VanVleet, a candid and cerebral player, ends up after he hears pitches from around the league.

  • Nando De Colo
    G, Toronto Raptors

    Nando De Colo has received his qualifying offer from the Raptors, making him a restricted free agent.

    De Colo has been out of the NBA for six years but his annual restricted free agency is one of the landmark offseason moments for Raptors Twitter. Hardcore fans wait with bated breath for Toronto to file the paperwork to hang onto De Colo's rights, even as it's apparent he won't be coming back to the NBA. After a brief flirtation with a comeback prior to the 2019-20 season, De Colo did leave CSKA Moscow, but for Fenerbahce in Turkey. We look forward to updating you on De Colo's status again next offseason.

  • Oshae Brissett

    The Raptors have issued a qualifying offer to Oshae Brissett.

    Brissett showed promise in his rookie season last year, even if he didn't get a ton of minutes. The Raptors like him as a versatile defender at the forward spots and he plays with great energy. The hometown kid will try and crack the rotation full-time next season, assuming no other team poaches him in free agency.

  • Malcolm Miller
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Blake Murphy of The Athletic is reporting that the Raptors will not extend a qualifying offer to Malcolm Miller.

    Miller will head elsewhere as an unrestricted free agent. He appeared to be a pet project of the team, earning a few starts as a rookie and then rehabbing under their watch after suffering a shoulder separation in Summer League, but he had a tough shooting year last season and will try to become a 3-and-D asset with another organization.

  • Chris Boucher
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors have extended a qualifying offer to Chris Boucher, making him a restricted free agent.

    Boucher is a stat magnet and has developed nicely with Toronto after seeing very limited action in his rookie year with the Warriors. Dominant at the G League level, Boucher will need to take a serious step forward this year to cement his NBA future. Depending on what happens in free agency, Boucher could enter training camp with a steady rotation spot there for the taking, and if he can earn it there will definitely be some fantasy appeal. Last year he averaged 4.5 rebounds, 0.4 steals, 1.0 blocks and 0.6 threes in just 13.2 mpg.

  • Jalen Harris
    G, Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors have selected Jalen Harris out of Nevada with the 59th overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

    Harris is a high-scoring two-guard who played his last year in the Mountain West Conference with Nevada. He was an offensive dynamo who took 3-pointers in bulk and rebounded well for his position. It'll be interesting to see if he can slide into the Raptors rotation at any point as a bench scorer especially if Fred VanVleet moves on.

  • Malachi Flynn
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors have selected guard Malachi Flynn with the 29th pick in the draft.

    Flynn isn't the best athlete but he's got a high basketball IQ and plays with immense toughness, which means he's definitely going to fit in with the Raptors. He's a tremendous pick-and-roll orchestrator and is a strong perimeter scorer. The limitations are purely physical here, as Flynn may struggle to hang against bigger and stronger guards. It's a player type that the Raptors have done wonders with in the past.
