The team has reportedly agreed to terms with restricted free agent forward Patrick Patterson on a three-year, $18 million contract.

Patterson, 25, was acquired during the middle of the season from the Sacramento Kings in the trade that sent Rudy Gay out of Canada. In 48 games with the team, he averaged 9.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and shot 41.1% from three.
The Raptors must now determine what to do with restricted free agent Greivis Vasquez, who was also acquired alongside Patterson from the Kings.
Drafted 14th overall during the 2010 draft, Patterson holds career averages 8.4 points and 4.6 rebounds.
With the Dallas Mavericks needing a backup to Dirk Nowitzki, some thought Patterson would be an ideal fit due to his ability to spread the floor.
