Toronto Raptors big man Travas Scott is ready to return to the Raptors.
Scott, who is out of contract at the end of the season, said he wants to play for the team again and he’s not just talking about the future.
The former NBA All-Star and NBA Finals MVP told the Toronto Sun that he’s open to returning to the Toronto organization.
“I’m definitely open to coming back,” Scott told the paper.
“I’m a Toronto fan, I’m a Raptors fan.
I want to be a part of this team and play for this organization.
It’s not a question of whether I’ll come back or not.
I just want to play basketball here.”
The Raptors signed Scott in 2013 and he was a key part of the team’s success last season, leading the league in assists with 19.
The Raptors signed him to a 10-year, $95 million deal that included a $32 million signing bonus in the summer of 2017.
Scott’s deal included an opt-out in 2020.
He’s expected to be paid a large amount of money next season, though the team is still negotiating with the 27-year-old veteran to extend his contract.
Scott has been a leader in the Raptors’ rotation this season and is expected to get more minutes in his absence.
