It seemed no matter who the opponent, regardless of the location, there was a familiar face - or rather, franchise - at just about every one of Dairis Bertans' games this past season overseas. That's why the Latvian playmaker said despite interest from a couple other NBA teams (Philadelphia and Toronto) to join their summer league teams, choosing the Boston Celtics was a no-brainer. "Probably the only team that was following me, I mean really following me, all season," Bertans told CSNNE.com. "They (Celtics) were at all my games. They knew how I was playing. And they invited me (to training camp). I didn't have to think about it." CSNNE.com

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

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.

It’s why, according to league sources, the Raptors have already had preliminary conversations with their own restricted free agent, Patrick Patterson, and are willing to wait for the market to calm before looking for the defensive-minded physical wing presence they need. Toronto Star
