Report: Raptors re-sign Patrick McCaw

The NBA offseason has died down a bit after a crazy first week of free agency, but teams around the league are still making key decisions with regards to their rosters. One such team is the Toronto Raptors, who have reportedly re-signed Patrick McCaw to a two-year deal:

With Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green playing for new teams, McCaw could have a big opportunity on his hands. Simply put, there will be a lot of minutes for the taking in the coming season.

McCaw missed a considerable amount of time with the Raptors last season due to a thumb injury, which came after he had a brief stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers. After wearing a splint for roughly three weeks, though, he made his return.

In his 26 regular-season appearances with the Raptors last season, McCaw posted averages of
2.7 points on 44.4 percent shooting from the field (33.3 percent from beyond the arc), 1.7 rebounds, an assist and just under one steal (0.8) in 13.2 minutes per outing.

The Raptors claimed their first championship in franchise history with a victory over the Golden State Warriors in the 2019 NBA Finals. McCaw, who was once a member of the Warriors, claimed his third consecutive ring, becoming just the third player in league history to win titles in three consecutive seasons with different teams (Steve Kerr and Frank Saul).
