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 He adds Indiana had a qualifying offer in place but eventually rescinded it, making Hansbrough an unrestricted free agent.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.

DeRozan scores 16 as Raptors defeat Thunder

Nov 4 2014 9:17pm CST | Source: Sportsnet.ca

TORONTO — When DeMar DeRozan was asked if there was anything positive to take away from such an ugly win as the Toronto Raptors’ victory over injury-riddled Oklahoma City on Tuesday, he wiped a hand over his exasperated brow. "A win. That’s about it. A win," DeRozan said. Kyle Lowry wasn’t quite so generous. "Naw, I don’t think so," Lowry said. DeRozan scored 16 points, and Lou Williams had nine of his 12 points in the fourth quarter as ...

Raptors to be without Johnson against Thunder

Nov 4 2014 11:28am CST | Source: Sportsnet.ca

Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson will sit out Tuesday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Johnson was forced to sit out Sunday’s game against the Miami Heat with a sore left ankle that he hurt Saturday when Toronto played the Orlando Magic. The 27-year-old battled foot and ankle problems for most of last season, but ended up playing though the pain most of the time. Patrick Patterson will likely get the start in his place. This season, Johnson is averaging 15 p ...

Jays look set to hit off-season ground running

Nov 3 2014 8:09am CST | Source: Sportsnet.ca

Apparently, Alex Anthopoulos learned something last season. Instead of waiting patiently for the market to develop and address pressing issues — only to find himself involved in the optically destructive Ervin Santana affair — Anthopoulos seems set to return to his favoured approach and do the heavy lifting before December’s winter meetings. For better or worse, that’s what happened two years ago when Anthopoulos pulled off a multi-player deal with the Miami Marlins that was formulated ...
