Three are no-brainers — Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan and Jonas Valanciunas are locks — and if DeMarre Carroll remains healthy, he’s the fourth sure thing. But when it comes to the fifth, things are a bit cloudy between Jared Sullinger and Patrick Patterson. “I would say Sullinger is the guy now that it would be his to lose, but I reserve the right to change my mind,” Casey said, citing the need to see how that group reacts defensively.
In Boston, the Celtics opted not to sign Jared Sullinger long-term. The plan, if they did according to published reports, was to insist on a some sort of weight clause language in his contract. They never had to make that decision opting instead look elsewhere. The Raptors inked the 6-foot-9, 260-pound power forward to a one-year deal worth $6 million. Sullinger said Tuesday there is no such clause in his deal with Toronto. “No, no contract language,” Sullinger said. “Masai (Ujiri) trusts me and he trusts the group we have here. On top of that I have vets talking to me. Kyle (Lowry) and DeMar (DeRozan) and DeMarre (Carroll) the guys are really counting on me to play major minutes so you kind of have to accept that and just keep going.”
