Durham, ON, Canada / channel12

The Toronto Raptors have confirmed that they have signed free-agent forward Jared Sullinger.
The deal is widely reported to be for one year at the mid-level exception of US$5.6 million. Sullinger had already announced he was joining the Raptors on his Twitter account on Monday.
The six-foot-nine, 260-pound former Celtic is a capable rebounder, but has struggled with his fitness.
The six-foot-nine, 260 pounder averaged 10.3 points and 8.3 rebounds in 81 games with Boston last season.
He will be looking to shore up a Raptors frontcourt that lost centre Bismack Biyombo and power forward Luis Scola to free agency.
The Raptors also confirmed the signing of DeMar DeRozan to a multi-year contact.
