Toronto Raptors Looking to Add Big Man, Interested in Kosta Koufos
The Toronto Raptors are still putting the finishing touches on their reigning championship roster.
With uncertainty in their front court past Pascal Siakam, Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol, the Raptors are looking to add one more big man to the fray. Rookie Dewan Hernandez is slated to play heavy minutes in the G League with the 905 despite a strong showing in Summer League and Chris Boucher looks ready to contribute on the NBA level although his inconsistent outside shot and lack of strength remains a concern for the organization.
Free agent big man Kosta Koufos has received preliminary interest from Detroit, Sacramento, Toronto and Milwaukee, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. The veteran, noted for his defense and rim protection, could be a later signing.

Along with the Sacramento Kings, Milwaukee Bucks, Detroit Pistons, the Raptors are interested in veteran big man Kosta Koufos according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports.
The 30-year old center has spent the last four seasons with the Kings and has averaged 3.7 points in 42 games last season. The 11 year veteran is still a reliable end of the bench depth piece who provides size, rebounding, and above average defense, primarily at the rim.
