The Raptors have officially signed second round pick Norman Powell, the team announced via a press release. The length and terms of the deal were not disclosed. Powell was the No. 46 overall selection in the 2015 NBA Draft.
The 22-year-old appeared in 36 contests for UCLA this past season, averaging 16.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.1 assists with a slash line of .456/.319/.751. His career numbers with the Bruins were 9.8 PPG, 3.0 RPG, and 1.5 APG. Powell is ranked No. 28 on UCLA’s all-time scoring list with 1,376 career points.
Powell has appeared in three Summer League games in Las Vegas where he leads the Raptors in scoring with 19.3 points per contest, and he’s shooting 59.5% from the field. The guard has led the team in scoring in each game, including a team-high 20 points during his professional debut against Sacramento’s squad.
