Garbajosa tied to Raptors.
Garbajosa, at age 28, is more of a 4/5 type measuring 6-foot-8, and might seem a strange pickup. He's not a frontliner by any stretch, but he has been linked in the past to the Suns and the Raptors. This is Jose Calderon's old teammate (and also a former Mike D'Antoni player in Italy), and with Mauricio Gherardini on his way in to the Toronto FO as assistant GM, it does make sense. With the Raptors poised under Bryan Colangelo to finally mine Europe (or at least try to) in a big way, it makes further sense. A spare part in the middle who can face up and shoot the 3, even if he's untried at this level, can't be any worse than Loren Woods, can it? That is, if Sam Mitchell bothers to give him any p.t.
If anyone knows more about this, send it along. Not a major signing, but it looks like a move nonetheless.
Meantime, if it doesn't work out, of if it's just a case of the Spanish translation for "Nate Huffman", you know the old saying: Garbajosa in, Garbajosa out.

UPDATE: Thanks to Alex and Joe C. for pointing out something I didn't put in here, that the article is reporting a three-year deal worth up to $12 million. And I stress "up to" -- Garbajosa is a free agent, and as such we probably won't have any of this confirmed until the FA signing period kicks in over the summer. And I wonder about that number.
