TORONTO - Masai Ujiri continues to take care of business.

The Raptors' president and general manager inked power forward Patrick Patterson to a three-year, $18 million U.S. contract on Friday afternoon, returning the key sixth man, who became an integral piece after coming over in January from Sacramento in the Rudy Gay trade.

ESPN first reported the signing and multiple sources quickly confirmed that Patterson, who averaged 9.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 41% three-point shooting in 48 appearances, seven of them starts, with the Raptors.
