Meeks, a 10-year veteran, has yet to play in the 2018-19 NBA season as he was serving a 25-game suspension that was handed out prior to the 2018 postseason. Prior to his suspension, the 31-year-old appeared in 77 games with the Washington Wizards in the 2017-18 season, averaging 6.3 points per game while playing just under 15 minutes per game.
Over the course of his career, Meeks has averaged 9.3 points per game while shooting 37.2 percent from deep. Along with the Raptors other recent acquisition Malcolm Miller, Meeks could potentially address the need for perimeter shooting after C.J. Miles was traded to acquire Marc Gasol.
Toronto, who is currently No. 2 in the Eastern Conference with a 43-16 record returns to action after the All-Star Break on Friday when it hosts DeMar DeRozan and the San Antonio Spurs.
