Sources that spoke with Shams Charania of The Athletic indicated that the Detroit Pistons, New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns are expected to pursue VanVleet in addition to Toronto.
Bobby Marks of ESPN reported in December that VanVleet could command $25 million to $30 million per season in free agency.
VanVleet averaged a career high 17.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 1.9 steals in 35.7 minutes per game.
