You can never have enough two-way wings.

Toronto Raptors president and vice-chairman Masai Ujiri said he wanted to build a team full of players like OG Anunoby, Precious Achiuwa, and Pascal Siakam, and so far that's exactly what he's done this offseason. After re-signing Chris Boucher and Thad Young to multi-year deals, Toronto has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with Otto Porter, according to Yahoo's Chris Haynes.

The specifics of the deal have yet to be reported, but the 6-foot-8 Porter will certainly take up the majority of Toronto's mid-level exception. The Raptors will likely use whatever is left to sign Christian Koloko, the team's second-round pick, to a multi-year deal.

Porter, 28, fills a role for Toronto as another 3-and-D wing player who shot 37% from behind the arc while averaging 8.2 points and 5.7 rebounds per game last season as a bench player for the Golden State Warriors. He's another versatile player who should fit Toronto's defensive system as someone who can defend multiple positions and switch freely throughout Nick Nurse's complex scheme.
