Toronto Raptors rookie Terence Davis responds to not making Rising Stars roster

On Friday, the rosters for this year's Rising Stars game were announced.

The game is a collection of the league's best young players, as 10 first and second-year players from the United States take on 10 first and second-year international players. Among those who will take the court for the event over All-Star Weekend are Trae Young, Zion Williamson, Ja Morant, RJ Barrett, Brandon Clarke and Deandre Ayton.

However, one player who won't make the trip to Chicago is Toronto Raptors guard Terence Davis, as he was not selected by the league's assistant coaches to be in the game.

Davis responded to not being named a Rising Star on Twitter.

Davis then responded to one-time champion Kendrick Perkins, who said there's "no way in hell" he shouldn't be in the game.

Following four seasons at Ole Miss, Davis went undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft. He signed a two-year contract with the Raptors following an impressive Summer League debut with the Denver Nuggets.

Davis is the only player on Toronto's roster who has appeared in every single one of the team's games so far this season. In 16.6 minutes, he is averaging 7.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 0.5 steals, doing so on 46.7 percent shooting from the field and 39.7 percent from 3-point range.

According to NBA.com, the Raptors have been 10.4 points per 100 possessions better with Davis on the court, giving him the best net rating on the team.
