Fred VanVleet Signs Huge Extension With The Raptors

Fred VanVleet rose to prominence during the 2019 NBA playoffs as he proved to be one of the most effective point guards in the entire league. His three-point shooting was off the charts in those playoffs and he was a major reason why that Toronto Raptors team was able to defeat the Golden State Warriors in the NBA playoffs. VanVleet is a player that Raptors fans have fallen in love with, and as a result, they were worried about his impending free agency.

Everyone expected VanVleet to get a large offer this offseason, and it was uncertain as to whether or not the Raptors would be able to keep him on the roster. Well, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Raptors and VanVleet have agreed to a four-year $85 million deal in which VanVleet has a player option for the final year.
