As Expected, Raptors Sign Chris Wright, Carlos Morais and Julyan Stone

Let the battle for the Raptors' last roster spot begin!


Small Thursday update as we continue to trudge towards training camp.

The Toronto Raptors announced this morning they have signed forward Chris Wright and guards Carlos Morais and Julyan Stone.

Yep, shocking, I know.

All three will compete for the team's remaining roster spot and all contracts appear to be non-guaranteed, although no financial terms were disclosed.

From the presser:

Wright participated on the Raptors' entry at the 2013 NBA Las Vegas Summer League and 2012 training camp in Halifax. During five games at Summer League he averaged 10.0 points and 3.2 rebounds while shooting .588 (20-for-34) from the field.

Morais recently competed for Angola at the 2013 FIBA Africa championship and was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player. He averaged 15.9 points and 4.6 rebounds in seven contests for Angola and scored a team-best 21 points during the championship game versus Egypt. Morais spent the 2012-13 season with Atletico Petroleos de Luanda in Angola and represented his country at the 2008 Summer Olympics and 2006 FIBA World Championship. 

Stone appeared in 26 games with Denver from 2011-13, averaging 1.7 points, 1.5 rebounds and 8.0 minutes. In four playoff contests, he contributed averages of 1.0 points, 0.8 assists and 4.3 minutes.
