The Toronto Raptors have come to terms with former Celtics 2013 first round pick Lucas Nogueira. Great news for Nogueira, bad news for Deandre Daniels. The Nogueira signing fills the Raptors roster, confirming rumors Daniels will be shipped overseas next season- though the Raptors will keep his rights. The team is currently in the process of finding the best fit for Daniels overseas, presumably a situation where he can get minutes immediately and continue to develop.
Because Nogueira signed within three years of being drafted, he'll receive a rookie-scale contract for the No. 16 pick in 2014 (the year he's signed, not drafted).
He gives Toronto 15 players, not including No. 37 pick DeAndre Daniels. The Raptors have until Sept. 6 to offer Daniels a required tender - a contract, guaranteed or unguaranteed, worth at least the league minimum - or he becomes a free agent.
Often, in these situations, a team volunteers to use its connections to secure the player an overseas contract. In exchange, the player agrees to decline the required tender, allowing the team to keep his rights.
I'd guess the Raptors and Daniels agree to such an arrangement.
