Restricted free-agent​ guard Greivis Vasquez has reportedly re-signed with the Toronto Raptors.

Though the team could not confirm a deal had been made as of Wednesday night, the 27-year-old Vasquez tweeted that an agreement was in place via his official Twitter account:

Vasquez also included a link to his Instagram account with a photo of him in his No. 21 Raptors uniform.

Teammate DeMar DeRozan also tweeted out a congratulatory message to Vasquez:

Vasquez was originally drafted 28th overall by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2010 and joined the Raptors during the 2013-14 season in the trade that sent Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings. In 61 games with Toronto, Vasquez averaged 9.5 points-per game and 3.7 assists-per game, splitting time between shooting guard and point guard.

The Venezuelan has also signed on as an ambassador for the Pan American Games in Toronto next summer.
