Raptors Source: Raptors close to deal with PG Lucas III

Quote:
The Toronto Raptors are closing in on the signing of free-agent point guard John Lucas III, according to sources close to the process.

Sources told ESPN.com the sides are in advanced discussions to finalize the terms on a multiyear deal to add Lucas to a backcourt rotation that had already been strengthened earlier this month by the Raptors' acquisition of Kyle Lowry.

One source said Wednesday the Chicago Bulls, who've employed Lucas for much of the past two seasons, were resigned to losing the 29-year-old.

With the Raptors and representatives for point guard Jose Calderon working together on trying to find a new home for Calderon via trade, as ESPN.com reported last week, Lucas has been targeted by the Raptors to potentially serve as Lowry's primary backup when Calderon -- who wants a fresh start -- moves on.

oh noes, I wanted Uzoh

Lucas is so good that a team that doesn't have any healthy point guards let him go

(yes I know of Hinrich)

Flynn would be better. Especially considering they'll be the #2 PG once Jose is finally shipped out.

It would have to be a S&T right? Maybe Deng is on his way to Toronto too?

I like Lucas - he's almost as good as Mike James was in Toronto - same type of player
