VanVleet is one of the biggest names on the market and arguably the top combo guard available. Toronto is hopeful of retaining him and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski said earlier on Friday he was likely to re-sign.
However, Grange’s report suggests they’ll have some competition for his services.
Grange offered these other tidbits on the Raptors:
- They have not reached out to Cavaliers free agent center Tristan Thompson. Toronto had been expected to express interest in Thompson. That could be a sign the Raptors are confident of re-signing another one of their top free agents, Serge Ibaka.
- There’s also a sense they’ll likely reach an extension agreement with OG Anunoby.
