Report: Raptors close to signing Greivis Vasquez

Friday July 4th, 2014

The Raptors appear close to coming to terms with Greivis Vasquez. Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports that Toronto is "closing in on a deal" with the free agent point guard, who was acquired from the Kings in a midseason trade.

Toronto agreed to a three-year deal with power forward Patrick Patterson on Friday, two days after agreeing to re-sign point guard Kyle Lowry to a four-year, $48 million contract.

Vasquez, 27, averaged 9.5 points and 3.5 assists in 61 games, providing valuable minutes as a backup to Lowry. The Raptors won 48 games and earned the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference before getting knocked out in the first round of the playoffs by the Brooklyn Nets.
