After the initial agreed upon contract fell through, Julyan Stone is still in discussions for the Raptors to honor their deal, a league source told Shams Charania of RealGM. Meanwhile, three other NBA teams have emerged as serious suitor for the point guard.
Toronto agreed to a two-year, $1.9MM deal with Stone last month but the deal was called off due to unknown issues with his physical. Since then, GM Masai Ujiri and Stone’s representatives have maintained an open dialogue. The 6-foot-6 guard wants to play for a club that will give him significant minutes, according to Charania.
Since breaking things off with Stone, the Raptors signed guards Dwight Buycks and D.J. Augustin in support of Kyle Lowry, creating some difficulty in reversing course on Stone. In 26 total NBA games, the 24-year-old has averages of 1.7 PPG and 1.5 APG.
