In a conference call with local Toronto media on Wednesday afternoon, unrestricted free agent Fred VanVleet said he is 'flexible' to taking a short-term deal due to the uncertainty of the NBA season and potential declining salary cap. (Josh Lewenberg on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

VanVleet's 2018 deal is set to expire and he's ready to cash in as an unrestricted free agent this summer. Given the NBA's landscape has changed a bit, he's lightened his stance on wanting a longer term deal. The four-year veteran from Wichita State has certainly earned a significant raise - setting career-highs with 17.8 points, 6.6 assists, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.9 steals in 48 games this season. VanVleet missed his last six games with a shoulder injury but he should be good to go when play resumes.
