Bryan Colangelo remains the busiest man in basketball as it appears the Toronto Raptors' general manager has re-acquired centre Rasho Nesterovic.

According to a report in the Toronto Star, Nesterovic has agreed in principle to a one-year deal worth approximately $1.9 million.

The 33-year old still owns a home in the Toronto-area despite being traded by the Raptors to the Indiana Pacers prior to last season as part of the package that brought Jermaine O'Neal to Toronto.

Nesterovic is slated to backup Andrea Bargnani at centre.  He averaged 6.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in 70 games with Indiana last season.  The 7-footer, who spent a pair of seasons in Toronto and won an NBA Championship with the San Antonio Spurs in 2005.

With one roster spot remaining, Colangelo is reportedly in negotiations with former Raptor Carlos Delfino who spent the past season playing with Khimki Moscow Region of the Russian Super league.
