The Canadian Press, citing an unidentified source close to the negotiations, said the official announcement could come as early as Tuesday.
The 43-year-old Mitchell was selected the NBA coach of the year last month after leading the Raptors to a 47-35 record. He was 60-104 in his first two seasons with the Raptors. His contract was set to expire June 30.
According to anonymous sources cited by the Toronto Star, the deal has a base salary of $12 million and could be worth as much as $14 million over three years.
