The Toronto Raptors have reached an agreement to sign former NBA player Sam Dekker, who played the last two seasons in Europe, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The deal is only partially guaranteed and Dekker will compete for a spot in training camp, according to Blake Murphy of The Athletic

Dekker was formerly the 19th pick to the Houston Rockets in 2015 after a promising run at Wisconsin, but failed to make an impression at the pro level. Dekker bounced between four teams in four seasons, and found himself having to continue his career overseas in the Turkish League.

The 27-year-old appeared to have made improvements in his three-point shooting, as he made 45 percent on 4.5 attempts per game last season. This was a noted improvement over his NBA showing where he was at 28 percent from deep despite being billed as a 6-foot-9 forward who could space the floor.
