Raptors Re-Sign Jamaal Magloire

SEPTEMBER 18TH: The Raptors have officially re-signed Magloire, according to a team release.

SEPTEMBER 6TH: Unrestricted free agent Jamaal Magloire will receive a non-guaranteed deal with an invite to training camp from the Raptors, according to Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun (via Twitter). Magloire played for the Raptors on a minimum-salary contract in 2011/12, and it appears he'll get the opportunity to do so again this season.

Magloire, 34, had a disappointing year in Toronto, averaging more fouls per game (1.9) than points (1.2) in limited minutes for the Raptors. His 37.8% field goal percentage and 2.7 PER were also among the worst of his career. However, Magloire had an even more disastrous season in 2007/08, and bounced back reasonably well with the Heat a year later, so the Raptors are taking a flier on the big man having a similar bounce-back performance this season.

With 14 players under contract, the Raptors will make Magloire the 15th man on their roster. However, the club can continue to invite players to training camp as long as the deals are non-guaranteed.
