Fred VanVleet Not Ready To Make Decision On $22.8M Option With Raptors

Fred VanVleet is widely expected to decline his $22.8 million option with the Toronto Raptors for the 23-24 season, but he wasn’t ready to commit to doing so one day after they were eliminated from the playoffs.

“I know we’re very dramatic around here,” he said. “It’s a tough way to go out. Not too much rush to jump into a decision about opting out. It will take some time.”

Though VanVleet denies the team made a formal offer, he reportedly declined a four-year, $114 million extension before the 2022-23 season.

VanVleet re-signed with the Raptors in 2020 on a four-year, $85 million deal.

VanVleet averaged 19.3 points, 7.2 assists and 4.1 rebounds this season.
