McGuire, who played 64 of 66 games for Golden State a season ago, is still working out the details on a one- or two-year deal, sources said, but has committed to play for Toronto. He was scheduled to participate in a workout with the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday with free agent Josh Childress, but cancelled after agreeing to play for Toronto this season.

McGuire gives the Raptors another athletic defender to come off the bench in the Eastern Conference this season.

After getting picked in the second round of the 2008 draft by the Washington Wizards, McGuire, 26, played two-plus seasons there, before stops in Sacramento, Charlotte and Golden State. McGuire is a long, athletic and versatile defender at 6-foot-9, averaging 2.8 points and 3.5 rebounds for his career.
