Trent agreed Monday to a three-year, $54 million deal with the Raptors, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Trent was dealt from the Trail Blazers to the Raptors at the deadline last season. He appeared in 17 games (15 starts) with Toronto and averaged 16.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 steals in 31.8 minutes. On the season as a whole, he made 2.8 threes per game at a 38.5 percent clip. The 22-year-old should continue to see starter's minutes with the rebuilding Raptors as he develops into one of the league's better three-point shooters.
Trent was extended a qualifying offer from the Raptors on Monday, Josh Lewenberg of TSN reports. As expected, the Raptors will give themselves matching rights on Trent, who will become a restricted free agent this offseason. All indications are that Toronto aims to keep Trent around, though that could change if another team swoops in with a well-above-market offer. After coming over from Portland at the deadline, Trent appeared in 17 games and posted averages of 16.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 steals while drilling 2.6 threes per game at a 35.5 percent clip.
Trent (coach's decision) did not play in Thursday's 114-102 loss to the Bulls. Trent, along with Chris Boucher, were both held out of the rotation despite apparently being healthy. The Raptors are not trying to win at this stage of the season, so it's unclear if Trent will be rejoin the rotation for either of the team's final two games.
Trent registered 18 points (5-20 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 6-8 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 36 minutes during Saturday's 109-99 loss to the Grizzlies. The 22-year-old struggled from the field but still managed to put up a decent scoring output. Since returning from a six-game absence due to a bruised lower leg, Trent is averaging 21.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.5 three-pointers and 1.0 steals over his last two games. The third-year guard will look to help break the Raptors' current three-game skid Tuesday at home against the Clippers.
Trent delivered 25 points (8-16 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, an assist and a steal across 36 minutes in Thursday's overtime loss against the Wizards. Trent had missed six games in a row due to a lower leg injury and looked impressive, putting up his fourth game with at least 20 points over his last seven appearances in an efficient manner. The 22-year-old guard might head back to the bench Saturday with the impending return of Kyle Lowry, but he still delivers value as a bench piece due to his scoring ability.
