Raptors Sign K.J. McDaniels

AUGUST 22: The Raptors have officially signed McDaniels, the team announced today in a press release.

AUGUST 17: K.J. McDaniels will sign a one-year, partially guaranteed deal with Toronto, tweets Adrian Wojnarowki of ESPN.

He will join Alfonzo McKinnie, Kennedy Meeks and Kyle Wiltjer as training camp invitees with some guaranteed money, notes Josh Lewnberg of TSN Sports (Twitter link).

McDaniels, 24, finished last season with the Nets, who acquired him from the Rockets at the trade deadline. With expanded playing time in Brooklyn, he averaged 6.3 points and 2.6 rebounds over 20 games.

A second-round pick by the Sixers in 2014, McDaniels had a promising start to his career in Philadelphia before being traded to Houston in February of 2015. He was never able to crack the rotation with the Rockets and saw limited minutes before being dealt away.

Before adding McDaniels, Toronto had $116.6M in guaranteed salary committed to 13 players, along with $100K for McKinnie that counts against the cap, tweets Bobby Marks of ESPN.

  1. Nice signing if he sticks, don’t know why KJ has struggled to find a home with his defensive abilities.

    Kinda curious at what kind of career KJ would of had if he stayed in Philly. He probably would’ve gotten more playing time developed as a player instead of being a fringe NBA player. Too bad he was such a momma’s boy.
