Raptors Signing Garrett Temple to One-Year Deal

The Raptors intend to sign guard Garrett Temple to a one-year, $3.2 million contract, agent Mark Bartelstein told Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.Garrett Temple

Temple, 37, was waived by the Pelicans earlier this month, just a few days before his $5.4 million salary was to become guaranteed. It has not been determined if his deal with the Raptors is fully guaranteed, just that he is receiving the veteran’s minimum for a veteran with at least 10 years of experience.

Last season, he appeared in just 20 games but is viewed as a respected veteran voice and a key member of the NBA players’ union.

Along with the Pelicans, the journeyman guard has also spent time with the Bulls, Rockets, Kings, Spurs, Clippers, Nets, Grizzlies and Wizards since entering the league in 2009.

Toronto has also added guard Dennis Schroder as a free agent this offseason, as well as rookie shooting guard Gradey Dick via the 2023 NBA Draft.
