The Toronto Raptors have signed Isaiah Taylor to a partially guaranteed deal, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Wednesday.

After not hearing his name called in the 2016 NBA Draft, Taylor started his professional career in Houston, where he appeared in four games with the Rockets and 25 games with the franchise's G League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

Taylor then appeared in 67 games with the Atlanta Hawks in the 2017-18 season, posting averages of 6.6 points, 3.1 assists and 1.4 rebounds on 41.8 percent shooting from the field and 25.0 percent from 3-point range.

Taylor's best game that season came against the Rockets to the tune of 26 points on 10-for-17 shooting from the field.

According to ESPN's Bobby Marks, the Raptors are now at max capacity having filled all 20 of their available roster spots. Taylor is one of five Raptors with partial guarantees, joining Cameron Payne, Chris Boucher, Malcolm Miller and Dewan Hernandez.

Josh Lewenberg of TSN added that the Raptors still have both of their two-way contracts up for grabs. Taylor could be a candidate for one of those contracts if he isn't one of the 15 players to make Toronto's final roster.
