Report: Toronto Raptors reach agreement with free agent forward Sam Dekker

The Toronto Raptors have reportedly added depth at the forward position.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Raptors have agreed to a deal with Sam Dekker, who spent the last season with Turk Telecom of the Turkish Super League.

Dekker, a 6-foot-8 forward, averaged 15.4 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists over 28 games in the Turkish Super League last season.

The 27-year-old was selected by the Houston Rockets with the No. 18 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Over 200 career NBA games with the Rockets, LA Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards, Dekker has posted averages of 5.5 points and 3.0 rebounds in 15.5 minutes per game.

After appearing in 47 games with the Cavaliers and the Wizards in the 2018-19 season, Dekker joined PBC Lokomotiv Kuban of Russia's VTB United League and the EuroCup before joining Turk Telecom in July of 2020.

Dekker joins the Raptors in a busy offseason in which the franchise made three selections in the 2021 NBA Draft, has reportedly parted ways with Kyle Lowry via a sign-and-trade with the Miami Heat and reportedly reached an agreement to re-sign restricted free agent Gary Trent Jr.

Deals can only be agreed upon in principle until Aug. 6 at 12:01 p.m. (ET) when they can be signed and made official.
