Sources – Toronto Raptors to sign veteran guard Will Barton


Free agent guard Will Barton is signing with the Toronto Raptors, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Barton, who completed a buyout with the Washington Wizards on Tuesday afternoon, will be eligible for a playoff roster. He has played in 29 career postseason games with the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers.

Barton, 32, was traded to Washington last summer in a deal that sent Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Ish Smith to the Nuggets. He was making $14.375 million in the final year of his contract.

Barton averaged 7.7 points per game but shot just 38.7% from the field in 40 games while coming off the bench for the Wizards this season, his first in D.C.
