Toronto Raptors, Gary Trent Jr. Agree to Three-Year, $54 Million Deal

It was to be expected and very quickly it happened.

As the NBA’s free agency period kicked off, the Toronto Raptors and Gary Trent Jr. agreed to a three-year, $54 million deal, which will keep the 22-year old in Toronto through the 2024 season. The final year in the deal is a player option.

Not to be upstaged by the departure of Kyle Lowry, Trent played exceptionally in his short time with the Raptors after being acquired at the trade deadline for Norman Powell from the Portland Trail Blazers. In 17 games with the team, Trent averaged 16.2 points per game and will now more than likely slot into the starting lineup in place of Lowry and play alongside Fred VanVleet in the backcourt.

A former second-round pick out of Duke (No. 37 overall), Trent first made a name for himself inside the NBA bubble when he absolutely went off during the Blazers 2020 playoff run. He averaged a career-high 15.3 points per game this past season while shooting 38.5-percent from long range.

Toronto’s focus will now shift to continuing to re-tool its roster in hope of returning to the postseason after a disappointing 2020-21 campaign in Tampa, Florida.
