The Athletic's Blake Murphy provided clarification that the second year of the deal is not guaranteed, adding that the deal is worth the veteran's minimum, meaning Toronto can still make use of the remainder of its mid-level exception during the free agency period.
Bembry, 26, spent the first four seasons of his career with the Atlanta Hawks, who selected him with the 21st overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. Last season, Bembry appeared in 43 games (four starts), posting averages of 5.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals in 21.3 minutes per contest.
Among Bembry's best performances in 2019-20 was a near triple-double on Oct. 31, when he finished with 18 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and two steals in an eight-point loss to the Miami Heat. At 6-foot-5, Bembry has shown the ability to play solid on-ball defence as well as countless hustle plays on both ends of the floor.
He also has the athleticism to make jaw-dropping finishes around the rim.
