The remainder of the midlevel was used on sharpshooter Matt Thomas and second-round pick Dewan Hernandez, which might surprise some. Both players signed partially guaranteed three-year deals for the minimum salary. (Thomas has a fully guaranteed $900,000 for 2019-20, $725,000 guaranteed for 2020-21 and no guarantee for 2021-22. Hernandez has $500,000 guaranteed for 2019-20 and no guarantee beyond that.) The minimum salary exception — which allows teams to fill out rosters with minimum salaries if they’re over the cap — only allows for deals up to two years in length. To tack on a third year, the Raptors had to dip into their midlevel.
