Raptors Convert Javon Freeman-Liberty’s Two-Way to Standard Contract

The Toronto Raptors are finalizing a multi-year NBA contract with Javon Freeman-Liberty, a guard who previously had a two-way deal with the team, as per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Freeman-Liberty, who didn’t get drafted in 2022, joined his hometown team Bulls on an Exhibit 10 contract.

He spent his first pro year with the Windy City Bulls, Chicago’s G League team. After impressing at the 2023 Summer League, he secured a two-way deal with the Toronto Raptors.

This season, he’s been mostly playing for the Raptors 905 in the G League, where he’s been putting up solid numbers averaging 23.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 4.2 assists.

Despite only making two appearances for the NBA team this year, he’s now set to join them for the remainder of the season.

Raptors head coach Darko is hopeful that Freeman-Liberty will see regular minutes at some point this season.

“Javon is quiet guy who came into camp and made a lot of noise”— Darko on Javon Freeman-Liberty getting his 2-way contract converted to a standard NBA deal.

Currently, the Raptors have 13 players under regular contracts, and an additional player, D.J. Carton, on a 10-day deal, which ends tonight.

This allows them to add Freeman-Liberty without having to waive any player, as standard rosters can accommodate up to 15 players.
