The Toronto Raptors have the Brooklyn Nets to worry about right now as the two are scheduled to tip-off their first round playoff series this weekend, but when their season does come to an end they’ll have a handful of contractual situations to deal with.
Both Patterson and Vasquez came over in the mid-season trade that sent Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings and both are restricted free agents come the offseason. It’s possible the two could be brought back on their current deals for one year, but both are looking to sign long-term deals and would like them to be with the Raptors if they have their choice.
“I wouldn’t mind staying with the Raptors at all,” Patterson told RealGM. “Toronto is a great city, and it has great basketball fans, which surprised me the most when I got here. I didn’t know the fan support was so great in Toronto.”
“If we stay together for three, four years … woo, this team will be scary,” Vasquez said. “We just got to stay humble.”
Patterson is scheduled to make $4.3 million next season if no new deal is agreed upon, Vasquez $3.2 million.
