New, comments

The new Toronto big man received wise words from a Raptors forever-favourite.

The freshest face (and hair) on the Toronto Raptors was introduced this morning, as Jared Sullinger officially signed and discussed his one-year contract to join the team. The former Celtic was drafted by Boston in 2012, and has since averaged 11.1 points and 7.7 rebounds. Here's the video from his introductory press conference.

Sullinger hit all the right notes in his conference, with one anecdote sticking out involving former Raptor fan favourite and current Celtic Amir Johnson. While in Las Vegas, the two discussed the city of Toronto, and Amir's feelings for the city clearly haven't dissipated in the last 14 months.

Sullinger is expected to sign for the team's mid-level exception and bring rebounding and shooting to the starting power forward spot. What are your thoughts on the signing?
