Former All-Star center Jamaal Magloire (no, seriously, he was once an NBA All-Star) will ink a deal with the Toronto Raptors, becoming the first Canadian to hoop for the organization. Per the Toronto Star: “The Raptors are inching closer to adding their first Canadian player in franchise history. While no contracts can be signed until Friday afternoon — and Toronto fans know better than anyone that no NBA deal is done until it’s signed, sealed and delivered — Jamaal Magloire is poised to join the team and give it some much-needed front court depth. Magloire, the Toronto native about to enter his 12th NBA season, would be coming on a one-year, veteran minimum deal worth slightly more than $1 million a season as president and general manager Bryan Colangelo tries to maintain financial flexibility for a year from now.”
