According to a source with direct knowledge of the situation, the Toronto Raptors are expected to express interest in free agent small forward Trevor Ariza this offseason.
Ariza would fill a big void at the three spot which was one of the needs that GM Masai Ujiri mentioned numerous times following the end of the playoffs.
“He fits the bill for a athletic wing with solid defense who has shown the ability to stretch the floor over his career,” said the source. “They’re definitely interested in him.”
