Greivis Vasquez has reached an agreement to re-sign with the Raptors for $13 million over two years.
He was a restricted free agent, but there was never really a doubt he'd be coming back, especially after the Raptors traded away Steve Novak. Vasquez gets a hefty raise here from just $2.1 million last year, so the Raptors may have went a bit over market value for a backup point guard. They also dropped $48 million over four years for their starter Kyle Lowry. The Raptors also have brought in Lou Williams in another trade this summer.

The Toronto Raptors are working towards completing a deal with unrestricted free agent Greivis Vasquez.

The deal is close to being finalized and could be completed as soon as Thursday, according to reports. Vasquez told media outlets in Venezuela that he is considering the $3.1 million qualifying offer from the Raptors, which would make him an unrestricted free agent again next summer. Vasquez still wants to sign somewhere where he can become a starter, so a one-year deal with Toronto makes sense since they just signed Kyle Lowry to a long-term contract.

Restricted free agent Greivis Vasquez is getting interest from the Bucks.

The Raptors unloaded the last two years of Steve Novak's deal on Friday, so they have enough room to make a solid offer to Vasquez. It sounds like he might get a bigger offer than he probably should with the Raptors, but it's possible the Bucks pay even more. He would certainly have more fantasy value on the Bucks.

The Raptors made a qualifying offer to Greivis Vasquez to make him a free agent.

This is just a formality since the qualifying offer was just over $3 million. Vasquez will likely fetch a deal much larger than that from other teams, but the Raptors can match it. Kyle Lowry is still likely going to be back with the Raptors, despite some erroneous reports earlier this week.

Restricted FA Greivis Vasquez said that he still wants to "give [himself] a chance to be a starting point guard."

"This is a huge summer," said Vasquez. "Obviously, Kyle Lowry [is an] unrestricted free agent. I'm a restricted free agent … What I know is that I have one of the greatest times this past season with the Toronto Raptors. After coming off a tough injury I finished up the season very very strong and I did my thing." Vasquez did play well down the stretch last year, but still only returned late-round fantasy value in 25.0 minutes per game over the final month of the regular season.

Greivis Vasquez started for resting DeMar DeRozan in the Raptors' 110-100 win over the lowly Bucks on Monday, scoring 25 points on 8-of-12 shooting (including five threes) with two rebounds, seven assists and no steals or blocks.

Vasquez can put up numbers against bad teams when his usage spikes due to injuries. The Raptors are still tied up with Chicago for the No. 3 seed in the East, so it's possible that DeMar DeRozan returns and makes Vasquez an easy drop. Jonas Valanciunas added 14 and 13 with no defensive stats but 6-of-6 makes from the foul line in the win.
Apr 14 - 10:18 PM

Greivis Vasquez will start in place of DeMar DeRozan (rest) on Monday night vs. the Bucks.

The Raptors have used Vasquez next to Kyle Lowry a lot since the All-Star break and he should be looking at minutes in the high 20s tonight. Vasquez will likely have plenty of chances to add threes and dimes for fantasy owners, so he's a nice option to start in standard leagues.
Apr 14 - 6:15 PM

Greivis Vasquez was fantastic in his start at point guard on Saturday, scoring a game-high 26 points with four boards, four assists and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He shot 10-of-15 from the field and was in rare form. Vasquez is usually a pass-first point guard and actually led the NBA in total dimes last season, but he was cooking with his shot tonight. Kyle Lowry (knee) missed his third consecutive game tonight, but he figures to be back soon. Vasquez owners probably enjoyed the ride, but it's probably coming to an end soon.
Apr 5 - 11:18 PM

Greivis Vasquez started for injured Kyle Lowry (knee) in the Raptors' 102-94 win on Friday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds, three assists and a steal.

It wasn't pretty most of the time but it got the job done for owners spot-starting Vasquez tonight. Lowry is traveling with the team for their game against the Bucks, but it's not yet certain if he will play or not. In the thick of the chase for home court advantage, Lowry will probably try to return as soon as possible.
Apr 4 - 10:25 PM

Greivis Vasquez had 15 points, eight assists, four rebounds, four 3-pointers and one steal in Wednesday's win over the Rockets.

With Kyle Lowry (knee) sidelined, Vasquez predictably did his roto-friendly thing while playing 40 minutes. The only caveat here is that Lowry has no structural damage and appears to be on the good side of a questionable tag ahead of Friday's game against the Pacers. Owners that streamed in Vasquez need to be prepared to pivot quickly based on Thursday's practice report.
Apr 2 - 10:49 PM

Greivis Vasquez will start in place of Kyle Lowry (knee) on Wednesday vs. the Rockets.

He's played several minutes at shooting guard this year, but all of his time is going to be at the point tonight. Vasquez should run most of the offense along with DeMar DeRozan and makes for a terrific plug-and-play option in all formats going up against Jeremy Lin and the up-tempo Rockets.
Apr 2 - 6:08 PM

Greivis Vasquez played 23 minutes vs. the Heat on Monday during a 93-83 loss with 17 points, one assist, four turnovers and three 3-pointers.

It wasn't his best game and only having one assist doesn't really make sense, but his playing time and role with the team will likely expand with the injury to Kyle Lowry (knee). No player handed out more dimes than Vasquez last season and he has a full set of skills with respect to filling the stat sheet, so he's probably the best pickup you can make tonight.
Apr 1 - 12:19 AM

Greivis Vasquez received five stitches on Sunday to close up a cut to his left cheek.

He should return and there is no word of any concussion, so he should be good to go. Vasquez's minutes are on the rise now that the Raptors are dialing down Kyle Lowry's minutes.
Mar 30 - 6:48 PM

Greivis Vasquez scored 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting with two rebounds, five assists, one steal and three treys in 24 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Kyle Lowry left the game due to an ankle injury and later returned, and depending on how the Raptors choose to handle Lowry it looks like Vasquez could have some speculative appeal. Once the seeding in the East starts to sort itself out the Raps probably would love to give Lowry a game off or two, but nothing is imminent at this time.
Mar 28 - 9:41 PM

Greivis Vasquez played through a left ankle injury on Wednesday, but saw just 17 minutes for seven points and two assists in the win.

Kyle Lowry still hasn't really seen his minutes severely limited and played 34 minutes tonight. And as long as Lowry is getting 30 minutes a night, Vasquez will have no fantasy value.
