Could The Raptors Be Close To Signing Shannon To MLE?
The Raptors are still waiting for Chris Bosh to make a decision, but they haven't completely stopped all other operations.
Toronto is "close" to reaching an agreement in principle with a free agent for some, if not all, of the team's mid-level salary cap exception.
No names have became immediately apparent, according to league sources.
The NBA's mid-level exception is worth more than $5 million, but teams can offer less to players.
Doug Smith of the Toronto Star lists Matt Barnes, Ronnie Brewer, Shannon Brown and J.J. Redick as potential targets.
