The Toronto Raptors are expected to pick up their team option for Bruce Brown Jr., putting him at $23 million on their books. However, Brown’s stay might be short, as Toronto plans to explore trading him this offseason.

Brown, valued by contenders as a versatile wing, signed a two-year, $45 million deal with the Indiana Pacers last summer and was traded to Toronto in the deal that sent Pascal Siakam to Indiana.
