Reports: Tyler Hansbrough agrees to two-year deal with Toronto

The Raptors have agreed to terms with Tyler Hansbrough on a two-year deal, according to multiple reports. 

Hansbrough, 27, spent the last four seasons with the Pacers after being drafted 13th overall in 2009. 

An energy power forward, Hansbrough will provide the Raptors with a little interior depth, especially with their trade of Andrea Bargnani to New York. Hansbrough is a workhorse on the offensive glass, a decent mid-range player and an active defender. 

The Pacers essentially swapped Hansbrough for Chris Copeland, who they agreed to terms with. Hansbrough was set to be a restricted free agent this summer, but the Pacers renounced his rights, making him unrestricted. They then signed Copeland, who is more of a stretch 4. 

Hansbrough averaged 7.0 points and 4.6 rebounds in 81 games last season.
