Jared Sullinger Agrees To One-Year Deal With Toronto Raptors
Jared Sullinger will be in Toronto for next season after the Boston Celtics rescinded their one-year $4.4 million contract offer to sign Al Horford last week.
The Raptors and Sullinger agreed upon a one-year deal worth around $6 million according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
Sullinger was the 21st pick in the 2012 NBA Draft but has not panned out to be anything special since his Ohio State days.
Last season he only missed one game but only managed to average 10.3 ppg, 8.3 rpg and .6 blkpg. For his career, Sullinger has only averaged 11.1 ppg, 7.7 rpg and .6 blkpg.
Sullinger could potentially start next season for Toronto just because of lack of options, but it would be surprising if the Raptors don't look for a better player to fill the four slot next to center Jonas Valanciunas.
