The Toronto Raptors have completed their training camp roster puzzle with the addition of Darryl Morsell, sealing the final spot as they gear up for the upcoming season.
The Raptors made the announcement about Morsell’s signing shortly after bidding farewell to Kevin Obanor.
Morsell, at the age of 24, is expected to ink an Exhibit 10 deal, indicating a likely assignment to the Raptors 905, where he could refine his skills and contribute significantly.
Standing tall at 6-foot-5, Morsell showcased his potential during the Summer League, displaying versatility with an average of 7.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 2.3 assists across four games for the Raptors.
His previous stint with the 905 demonstrated promise, as he averaged 8.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 2.2 assists, all while shooting at a respectable 42.9% from the field, albeit with a 24% mark from beyond the arc.
Morsell’s journey to the NBA was a unique one, as he went undrafted in 2022 despite completing his fifth year of college, primarily split between Maryland and Marquette.
As the roster stands, the Raptors are now set with a total of 20 players for their training camp, including Markquis Nowell, Javon Freeman-Liberty, and Ron Harper Jr., who have secured two-way contracts, signaling a probable stint with the 905.
Jeff Dowtin Jr. holds the distinction of being the sole player on a traditional non-guaranteed deal as training camp approaches.
The anticipation is building as the Raptors are scheduled to kick off their training camp next week in the picturesque setting of British Columbia, following the excitement of Media Day in Toronto, which is set to take place on Monday.
