Shams Charania: The Toronto Raptors are waiving forward Anthony Bennett to sign veteran Jason Thompson for the season, league sources tell The Vertical.
"All that stuff is behind him," Casey insisted. "He's got a clean slate. The financial part of it is not involved right now. It's an incentive for him now to play to get that next contract or whatever. But again, playing basketball, just forget everything else, clean slate, start from scratch and go from there."
Shams Charania: After physical exam today, Anthony Bennett has signed a one-year veteran minimum deal with the Toronto Raptors, league source tells Yahoo.
Marc Stein: Barring some unexpected snag, Toronto is well-placed to sign Anthony Bennett to one-year minimum deal -- all it can offer -- early next week
Jeff Goodman: Former No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett is expected to clear waivers and sign with Toronto, source close to situation told ESPN.

The Utah Jazz may be in the midst of the widest coaching search in recent NBA memory. In all, according to reports, they’ve interviewed at least 15 candidates for the job once held by Quin Snyder. But three weeks into the process, it looks like the team’s decision-makers are favoring the younger assistant coaches in their search for a new leader. In particular, it’s Celtics’ assistant Will Hardy that is considered by many league insiders to be a leading candidate at this point.
In terms of his relationships with the Jazz’s front office, it should be noted that Hardy and new Jazz CEO Danny Ainge’s time with the Celtics didn’t officially overlap. Another highly-considered candidate for the Jazz’s head coaching job is current Suns assistant Kevin Young.
