Raptors renouncing Sam Dekker | Rumors of hoops


NOVEMBER 6: The team has officially given up on TSN Sports’ Dekker, Josh Lewenberg tweets. Bonga’s $ 1.67 million contract has been fully guaranteed, he adds.

NOVEMBER 5: The Raptors give up advancing Sam dekker, tweets Blake Murphy from Sportsnet.ca. Dekker was on a partially guaranteed deal, so he will still earn $ 350,000, the guaranteed part of his contract.

Dekker had fought with Isaac bonga for 14th place on the list. Both players had previously agreed to extend their guarantee date to November 6.

Dekker only appeared in a regular season game for the Raptors, registering a minute, although he had strong performances in the preseason. He last played in the NBA in 2018/19, having spent the last two seasons playing in Europe.

This move keeps the Raptors under the luxury tax threshold, as was mentioned in our previous articles.

Assuming he clears the waivers, Dekker will become an unrestricted free agent.

As for Bonga, it’s unclear whether the Raptors intend to guarantee his minimum wage for 2021/22. It is possible that the two parties agree to postpone the date of its guarantee. It could even be lifted too, although the team is expected to regain up to 14 players within two weeks in this scenario. For now, his place on the list seems at least more secure than that of Dekker.
