Per Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Raptors have reached agreement with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson on a one-year deal. In the wake of reigning Finals MVP and Raptors star Kawhi Leonard reportedly reaching a deal with the LA Clippers, Toronto has taken a chance on Hollis-Jefferson for 2019-20.

Last season, Hollis-Jefferson averaged 5.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 steals in 21.2 minutes per game. He is the second forward the Raptors have reached a deal with recently, as veteran Stanley Johnson reportedly agreed to a two-year deal yesterday.
