Sources also told the Sun that the Raptors are closing in on on a deal with Greivis Vasquez, a restricted free agent like Patterson, who also was acquired from the Kings. Vasquez will backup newly signed star point guard Kyle Lowry. Toronto Sun

Assuming Brazilians Bruno Caboclo and Lucas Nogueira join the team for next season, as expected, the roster is nearly full, with precious little cash remaining to bring in a needed defensive-minded small forward and big rim protector. Toronto Sun

Look for the Magic to sign an older player to give a bit more balance to the roster. Also, it’s possible the team will attempt to add another power forward. The team reportedly has given consideration to pursuing Toronto Raptors restricted free agent Patrick Patterson. Orlando Sentinel

Second-round selection DeAndre Daniels, a combo forward who helped lead Connecticut to an NCAA championship in April, also is in the mix and currently is in Los Angeles working out with Caboclo, DeRozan and Johnson, but Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri has indicated Daniels will be stashed in Europe for a year to get some much-needed playing time.

The drawback, and it’s been whispered lightly by some in the organization who don’t want to shout it lest they be seen as turncoats, is what will the biggest and best contract of Lowry’s career do to him? The fear, of course, is that he gets, in the words of the inimitable Mo Pete, fat and sassy with the security of this deal. I can understand some trepidation because no one knows how athletes will react to even more ridiculous riches than they are used to but I get the sense that won’t be the case with this kid.

Free-agent guard Kyle Lowry has reached agreement on a four-year, $48 million contract extension with the Toronto Raptors, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The fourth year of the contract is at Lowry's option. "Toronto is just the right place for me," Lowry told Yahoo Sports. Yahoo! Sports
