NBA: Toronto Raptors, Tyler Hansbrough Reach 2-Year Deal

Jul 9 2013, 10:57pm CDT | by

Former Indiana Pacers power forward Tyler Hansbrough reportedly reached a two-year deal with the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday.

Former Indiana Pacers power forward Tyler Hansbrough is now a Toronto Raptor. 

Canada's CBC Sports via the Canadian Press reports Toronto signed the physical Hansbrough to a multi-year contract, citing multiple reports. His acquisition happens at a time when the Raptors are seeking to bolster their frontcourt after dealing Andrea Bargnani to the New York Knicks for Steve Novak, Marcus Camby and draft picks.

No terms have been disclosed in terms of salary, but some experts believe Hansbrough may seek something more than the bi-annual exception which starts at $1.96 million. 

Indianapolis' Fox 59's Larry Hawley writes the deal is for two years. He adds Indiana had a qualifying offer in place but eventually rescinded it, making Hansbrough an unrestricted free agent.  

His departure is thought to have been brought about by the presence of starting power forward David West, which did not make it possible for Hansbrough to log a lot of minutes at the 4-spot. 

Hansbrough averaged 11 points and 5.2 rebounds in 29 starts in the 2010-11 NBA season, helping Indiana secure a playoff berth for the first time in five years. He averaged seven points and 4.6 rebounds in a backup role to West last season. 

The deal isn't expected to be made official until July 10, when the free agent moratorium is lifted by the NBA.
