Raptors Re-Sign Patrick McCaw

7:03pm: The signing is official, according to a team press release.

2:29pm: The Raptors have agreed to a new deal with restricted free agent guard Patrick McCaw, reports Blake Murphy of The Athletic (via Twitter). A source tells Murphy that it will be a two-year contract.

Restricted free agency moved much quicker for McCaw this time around than it did last year, when he was a Warriors RFA and remained unsigned until December 28. The 23-year-old signed an offer sheet with the Cavaliers, but they waived him about a week later – before that deal became fully guaranteed – and he subsequently caught on with the Raptors.

In 26 regular season games for Toronto, McCaw averaged 2.7 PPG and 1.7 RPG in 13.2 minutes per contest. He played limited minutes in 11 postseason games for the Raptors, winning his third title in his third NBA season.

Their new deal with McCaw continues an offseason trend for the Raptors, who seem to be prioritizing wing defense after losing Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green. McCaw, Stanley Johnson, and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson aren’t reliable outside shooters, but they can all guard perimeter players effectively. Matt Thomas is the lone shooter the Raptors have agreed to sign this summer.

    I imagine Raptors front office are looking at paying GASOL 25 mil so they can win 38 games next year I mean I like Pascal and lowry but they may not even be a playoff team next year.

      Eh the team did go 17-5 without Kawhi last year. Obviously they won’t win 77% of their games next year but especially in the regular season I don’t see why they’re not a 45 win team.

      Raptors have one of the best GMs in the game, they don’t make stupid moves. Like Jays of Thunder said, they were 17-5 without Kawhi last year. And they won the championship. They will be fine.

      With Valanciunas instead of Gasol they probably don’t win. Smh. Sorry your team didn’t win.

      Siakam is legit and will land them in the playoffs, but don’t see a deep run.

      Seems like they’re rebuilding, but should bring back Vince Carter for the fans since they didn’t sign anyone exciting this off-season.

    Why do people continue to make stupid comments—38 wins ? Especially with no reason to justify it !
    When was the last time they won less then 50 games ? That was 5 years ago
    I would argue that they are and maybe an even better defense team this year. Where they are lacking is in offense. Let’s see what happens by the end of the season. Don’t be surprised if they are 50+ win team again

    Without Kawhi, the Raptors are a first round out..They’ll likely have a good regular season, but without a star, they just won’t have enough fire power to compete in the playoffs.

    • jkoms57

      Well they have a star in Siakam, just don’t have much around him.

      Lost Green and Kawhi, replaced with RHJ and Stanley J is harsh reality.

    Surprised that McCaw signed with the Raptors.
    Based on name, thought he was leaning towards either the Pelicans or the Heat !!
    The Raptors were said to be trying to bring over Bruno Brontosaurus from overseas !!

      Many of need to see the landscape changed everywhere, Brooklyn got stronger, Miami May hit the Westbrook jackpot, as well as the draft. This will be a decent team but you don’t have a 1-2 punch like past years of derozan/Lowry and Kawhi and company.
