The No. 29 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft has only appeared in 13 of Toronto's 21 games so far this season, averaging 2.2 points and 1.2 assists in 8.2 minutes per game. Playing with Raptors 905 in the G League bubble will give the 22-year-old guard an opportunity to polish his game and receive much more playing time than he has seen in the NBA so far.
He'll join the Raptors' No. 59 overall pick of the 2020 NBA Draft, two-way guard Jalen Harris, in the Orlando bubble. The team's other two-way player, Yuta Watanabe, is also listed on Raptors 905's roster for the G League season, but with his recent uptick in playing time - averaging 7.0 points and 4.3 rebounds in 17.5 minutes over the last six games - there has been no indication of him leaving the big league club for the bubble.
Raptors 905 will kick off their season on Wednesday, Feb. 10 against the Rio Grand Valley Vipers.
