Jerryd Bayless will be a restricted free agent this summer.
The Raptors can make the $4.16 million qualifying offer, negotiate a long-term extension or possibly match a competing offer from another team.
Bayless believes he can be an NBA starter, though some feel he is better suited in a combo guard role off the bench.
Bayless would like to remain with the Raptors.
“I kind of have an idea” (of what the future holds)," said Bayless about his agent speaking with Bryan Colangelo.
Bayless will carry a $7.6 million cap hit until he is signed.
