According to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Raptors have agreed to send Matt Thomas to the Utah Jazz in exchange for a future second-round pick.

Thomas, 26, is in his second NBA season and has appeared in 26 of the Raptors first 42 games in the 2020-21 season. Originally undrafted in 2017, Thomas spent the first two seasons of his professional career in the Spanish ACB League before joining Toronto as a free agent in the 2019 offseason.

Through 67 NBA games, Thomas has connected on 64 of 140 3-point attempts, making him a career 45.7 percent shooter from deep. Last season, Thomas scored a career-high 17 points after shooting 5-for-7 from deep in a historically dominant win over the Indiana Pacers.

Now, Thomas is reportedly set to join a Jazz team that knocks down a league-leading 17.0 triples per game at a 39.7 percent clip. The team has been linked to shooters ahead of the deadline and Thomas has an opportunity to carve a role as yet another shooter in Utah's potent offence.

The reported deal to send Thomas to the Jazz comes not long after Toronto was reported to be sending Norman Powell to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for Gary Trent Jr. and Rodney Hood. With rumours still surrounding six-time All-Star Kyle Lowry, the Raptors could still have another move to make.
