TORONTO -- The Toronto Raptors have exercised team options on contracts for guard-forward DeMar DeRozan and forwards James Johnson and Ed Davis.

The club announced Friday it picked up the fourth year options for DeRozan and Johnson, and the third year for Davis, which guarantees all contracts through the 2012-13 season.

The Raptors had until Oct. 31 to exercise their option on the three players.

DeRozan is in his third season with Toronto and has averaged 13.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 28.4 minutes over that span. He was the only Raptor to start all 82 games last year.

Johnson joined the Raptors on Feb. 22 from Chicago for a 2011 first-round draft pick. He averaged 9.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 25 games with Toronto.

Davis averaged 7.7 points, 7.1 rebounds and 24.6 minutes in 65 appearances last season. He ranked first in the NBA among rookies in field goal percentage at .576.
