Toronto Raptors Make a Minor Move, Sign EuroLeague Star Matt Thomas

This wasn’t the first move Toronto Raptors fans expected from their team, but it was a neat little signing that’ll fly under-the-radar this offseason.

It wasn’t a Danny Green or a Kawhi Leonard, so I apologize in advance.

The Raptors made a Canada Day signing in Matt Thomas, a EuroLeague sharpshooter who will join the club on a three-year, $4.2-million deal. A cheap contract which maintains the Raptors cap flexibility Thomas comes in from Valencia of the EuroLeague where he made a name for himself as a legit marksman.

The 24 year old spent four years at Iowa State before going undrafted and taking his talents to Europe. Last season, the 6-foot-4 wing averaged 11.4 points per game while shooting a deadly 48.5-percent from three point range and 54.5-percent from two. A volume shooter who is more than willing to let it fly a la the same mindset as a JJ Redick, if Thomas’ three-point brilliance translates over to the NBA, this will be a marvellous coup for the Raptors.

Now, to turn the focus back to Leonard and Green.
