Undrafted Ole Miss guard Terence Davis is joining the Raptors on a two-year contact, with the first year fully guaranteed, according to reports:
Sources: Undrafted Ole Miss guard Terence Davis has agreed to a two-year deal with the Toronto Raptors, with full guarantee in Year One. Davis turned down two-way deals during the June NBA Draft; now signing full contract.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 8, 2019
Davis stayed all four years at Ole Miss, and went and from end-of-the-bench role to the team’s leading scorer. In his senior season Davis averaged 15.2 points along with 5.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists. He also shot a respectable 37 per cent from downtown last year.
At 6’5” he might not have all the size you’d want on the wing in today’s NBA, but he was noted for his physicality as a defender in college; in the Raptors’ development program, and playing alongside similar undersized but picked-off-the-scrap-heap guys like Norman Powell and Fred VanVleet, he might find a role with Toronto.
Davis is currently in Las Vegas, where he’s playing for the Denver Nuggets’ summer league team; he scored 22 points on 5-of-7 shooting from three-point range in his first game.
With Davis under contract for at least next season, and the additions of Matt Thomas, Stanley Johnson and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, the Raptors now have 11 players fully signed heading into 2019-20, along with four other non-guaranteed or two-way deals:
- Kyle Lowry
- Fred VanVleet
- Norman Powell
- OG Anunoby
- Pascal Siakam
- Marc Gasol
- Serge Ibaka
- Matt Thomas
- Stanley Johnson
- Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
- Terence Davis
- Malcolm Miller (partial guarantee)
- Chris Boucher (partial guarantee)
- Jordan Loyd (two-way contract)
- Sagaba Konate (Exhibit 10)
Their lone draft pick from the 2019 draft, second-rounder Dewan Hernandez, remains unsigned.
