VanVleet Re-Signs with Raptors

After Going Undrafted, Raptors Reward VanVleet with Two-Year Deal

The Toronto Raptors started the free agency period by crossing off one of their top priorities.

Going undrafted out of Wichita State, Fred VanVleet has risen to becoming one of the more reliable second unit players in the entire NBA, becoming a finalist for the 6th Man of the Year award this past season. After averaging 8.6-points per game while shooting 41.6% from three point range, the Raptors rewarded the undersized point guard with a two-year, $18-million deal.

Despite rumours speculating the Phoenix Suns as potential suitors for VanVleet, the Raptors struck a deal quickly, not wasting any time. Over the past season, VanVleet has become a key part of the Raptors core, turning into the backbone of the NBA’s best second unit.

With the deal in place, the Raptors can now look at bringing pieces into continue building on a solid start to their offseason.
