Oshae Brissett: Indiana Pacers sign Canadian forward to second 10-day contract

Oshae Brissett continues to make a great impression on the Indiana Pacers organization.

The team Sunday announced that they have signed the Mississauga native to a second 10-day contract after first signing him on Thursday, April 1.

Brissett, who went undrafted in 2019, spent his rookie season on a two-way contract with the Toronto Raptors. After being cut by the Raptors ahead of the 2020-21 NBA season, Brissett was drafted with the 21st overall pick in the 2020 NBA G League Draft by the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the Pacers' G League affiliate.

In 12 games (10 starts) in the G League bubble, Brissett posted averages of 18.6 points, 9.7 rebounds and 2.2 steals while playing in just under 35 minutes per contest.

Since signing with Indiana, Brissett has appeared in two games, most recently seeing limited action in a narrow win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. With T.J. Warren out for the year due to early-season foot surgery, Brissett provides insurance at the forward position should the Pacers' depth take any more hits.

Per NBA rules, Brissett has now signed the maximum of two 10-day contracts with one franchise and, at the conclusion of this contract, could only be retained if Indiana elects to sign him for the remainder of the 2020-21 season.
