After having his rights renounced by the Boston Celtics over the weekend, it didn't take Jared Sullinger much time to catch on with another team. The power forward announced via Twitter that he has signed with the Toronto Raptors. The deal is said to be for one year at about $6 million per season. 

Sullinger, a first-round pick of the Celtics back in 2012, averaged 10.3 points and 8.3 rebounds this past season. It represented his best statistical season since entering the Association. 

The expectation here has to be that Sullinger will share the power forward duties with Patrick Patterson in Toronto. Though, it wouldn't be a huge surprise to see him overtake his new teammate in the starting lineup.

From a fantasy perspective, the former No. 15 pick qualified as a center in Boston last season, finishing as the 13th-best fantasy player at that position. It remains to be seen if that's where he's going to be locked in this upcoming season.
