reports that raps n will cherry have agreed in principal to a 2 yr deal .. League minimum
The Raptors signed Will Cherry to a two-year deal.
It's at the minimum and for the second year in a row the Raptors sign a point guard who impressed at summer league. They already waived Dwight Buycks earlier this month, so Cherry essentially takes his place and could fall on the depth chart as the third point guard. He performed very well at summer league, averaging 12.8 points, 4.0 boards, 3.0 assists and 0.2 steals on 52.1 percent from the field.

Seriously though, I don't mind this pick up. We are talking about a 15th man and a 3rd string PG. Give it to a guy who wants to prove something. It only really matters in practice or if there is a significant injury to Vasquez or Lowry.
I'm wondering if Masai saw something with last years group he wanted to change. Cherry probably combines the skills of Buycks and Stone with some additional court awareness. For some reason I feel like Masai is correcting something in the locker room. My guess is Lowry didn't like going against Buycks or Masai wants cherry to push Lowry and or Vasquez. I'm thinking it to keep Lowry engaged which proved to be key this season. IMO.
