The Canadian spent most of his time with Raptors 905 that first year with Toronto and was named both the G League’s MVP and top defensive player.

Three years later, he re-signed with the Raptors on a two-year deal worth $13.5 million — the richest contract in NBA history by an undrafted Canadian player.

The Raptors are reportedly also bringing back veteran forward Thaddeus Young, agreeing with the 34-year-old on a two-year deal worth $16 million.

Young averaged 6.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 26 games for the Raptors.
