Cory Joseph to Sign With Toronto on Four-Year $30 Million Deal

by July 06, 2015

Pickering, Ontario native Cory Joseph is coming home, having agreed to a reported four-year, $30 million pact with the Toronto Raptors.

Joseph, 23, spent his first four seasons with the San Antonio Spurs, and is coming off a career-best year (6.8 points, 2.4 assists in 79 games.)

Per the Toronto Sun:

Masai Ujiri said earlier this year he had no doubt the Raptors would land an impact Canadian during his tenure as general manager, but citizenship is far from the only reason Cory Joseph becomes that guy.


Joseph, the Pickering, Ont., native and national team starting point guard, verbally agreed to a four-year deal worth $30 million US. ESPN reported the final year will be a player option and Joseph confirmed the news by tweeting: “#WeTheNorth here I come!”
