P.J. Carlesimo has an agreement in principle to join the Toronto Raptors as an assistant coach under Jay Triano, according to league sources.
Prior to that, Carlesimo served as an assistant coach with the San Antonio Spurs under Gregg Poppovich.
Carlesimo spent this season working for the Spurs as a color commentator on their radio broadcasts.
Carlesimo has compiled a 204-296 record as a head coach having helmed the Portland Trail Blazers (1994-97) and Golden State Warriors (1997-2000) before taking over the Seattle SuperSonics in 2007 before their move to Oklahoma City.
