Raptors agreed to sign Landry Fields.
Landry Fields and the Toronto Raptors have agreed to an offer sheet. Three years, 19 million contract. The New York Knicks will have three days to match (From July 11 to the 14th) There's no doubt Toronto likes Landry as a player. But this move also had another purpose, the Knicks and Suns were talking about the possibility of doing a sign and trade for Suns guard, Steve Nash. Landry Fields was a player the Suns definitely wanted back, now that won't happen since he's likely headed to the Raptors. It's very doubtful the Knicks will match the offer, they think highly of Fields, but not to that extent. Too bad there's a big chance we won't see more of Lin/Fields handshakes.
