Aaron Gray Will Sign With Raptors, According To Report

The Toronto Raptors have whiffed on Steve Nash and signed Landry Fields in the 2012 NBA offseason so far. The logical third step in Bryan Colangelo's world domination plan played out Saturday night: Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Raptors will sign center Aaron Gray to a two-year contract.

Gray spent the 2011-12 season with Toronto after bouncing from the Bulls -- with whom he spent parts of three seasons -- to the Hornets. After the better part of two seasons in New Orleans he has improved as a rebounder and defender. He pulled down 4.2 rebounds per game in New Orleans in the 2010-11 season, but snagged 5.7 boards per contest in 2011-12 at a 12.4-rebounds-per-36 minutes rate.

Gray's not much of a scorer — he's never averaged more than 4.1 points per game, despite starting 40 games in 2011-12 — but he'll come cheap and do the grunt work of patrolling the boards part-time.
