Raptors sign Kleiza to multiyear deal
TORONTO -- Toronto has signed free agent Linas Kleiza to a multiyear contract.
The Raptors acquired the rights to Kleiza nine days ago when the Denver Nuggets opted not to match Toronto's offer sheet.
Kleiza played with Greek club Olympiakos last year after four seasons in Denver. The 6-foot-8 forward from Lithuania -- who attended high school in Maryland -- averaged 8.3 points with the Nuggets.
