The Toronto Raptors are a strong frontrunner to sign Bennett, a native of the city, to a deal, league sources said.

Bennett’s reps pushed for a buyout with Minnesota and tried to dissuade teams from claiming him on waivers, league sources said. His agents had a destination in mind for Bennett, league sources said.

Minnesota negotiated a contract buyout with Bennett this week, after both the organization and player believed that he had little future within the Wolves’ deep frontcourt.
