Maccabi Tel Aviv swingman Anthony Parker and the Toronto Raptors have reportedly reached agreement on a deal that would bring the former New Jersey Nets draft pick to Canada. The New York Sun reported the deal on Tuesday, a day before official announcements regarding freeagent signings and trades can be made, while the Toronto Sun said that Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo was in negotiations to sign Parker. According to the Toronto Sun, Parker was seeking a deal in the three-year, $12 million range. In addition, a blog on the Raptors' official Web site that is written by Chuck Swirsky, the team's TV playby-play announcer, referred to an unnamed "basketball Web site" that also confirmed the deal. Parker's contract with Maccabi Tel Aviv has one year remaining on it and does not have a buyout clause. Tel Aviv, which just hired a new head coach, has not indicated any willingness to release Parker from his contract.
