NBA rumors: Gary Trent Jr interested in re-signing with Raptors

More on Gary Trent Jr Free Agency

Trent has a small $2.1 million cap hold which is very valuable to Toronto. They could spend all their cap space and then go over the cap to re-sign Trent to what he commands. They can generate around $22 million in cap space assuming they get a mid-to-late lottery pick, and they waive all non-guaranteed contracts except Chris Boucher. Newly acquired Hood is non-guaranteed for next season, so it’s possible that the Raptors buy him out now since they will likely cut him this offseason.
Jason Quick: Gary Trent Jr. says he intends to play the season out and become a restricted free agent rather than negotiate a contract extension. In a sense, this is him betting on himself rather than trying to nail down the security of a multi-year deal. Good incentive for him to play well

According to NBA insider Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel, Dragic has a preference, which is to join fellow Slovanian star Luka Doncic, in Dallas. Writes Winderman: “The sense is Goran works his way toward his preferred (and most viable) option of the Mavericks, to close out the season alongside Slovenian compatriot Luka Doncic. … Goran already has proven amenable to a bench role, something he thrived in with the Heat.”
