According to other reports, the Raptors will also bring back Canadian Chris Boucher on a two-year deal.

The trade will allow the Lakers to finalize a deal with Marc Gasol, according to Wojnarowski.

In the twilight of his career, Gasol would be a great veteran fit on the Warriors - a team that will be welcoming plenty of young faces in Kelly Oubre Jr., No. 2 overall pick James Wiseman, Andrew Wiggins, Eric Paschall and Jordan Poole. He won his first with the Raptors two seasons ago after Toronto pried him away from the Grizzlies in a midseason trade.
