TORONTO - Guard Greivis Vasquez has reportedly re-signed with the Toronto Raptors.
Though the team could not confirm a deal had been made as of Wednesday night, the 27-year-old Vasquez tweeted that an agreement was in place via his official Twitter account.
"Happy to be back with the best fans of the NBA — Toronto Raptors fans," wrote Vasquez, who was a restricted free agent.
