The Toronto Raptors have signed Jamaal Magloire, making the center the team's first Canadian player in its 16-year history.
The club announced the signing Friday.
The 33-year-old Magloire, a 6-foot-11 Toronto native, has played 11 seasons in the NBA, averaging 7.5 points, 6.6 rebounds and 22.1 minutes in 646 regular-season games with the Charlotte/New Orleans, Milwaukee, Portland, New Jersey, Dallas and Miami.
He has averaged 7.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 19.8 minutes in 46 playoff games.
He was an All-Star in 2003-04 when he started all 82 games with New Orleans, averaging 13.6 points and 10.3 rebounds.

The Miami Heat will be without 33-year old shooting guard Eddie House for several weeks due to a knee injury. House played in 56 games (1 start) for the Heat last year and he averaged 17.5 minutes, 6.5 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. He shot 38.9% from three point range, so the Heat will miss his instant offense off the bench a little bit.
The Miami HEAT announced today that they have signed guard Terrel Harris.
