The Raptors have signed former Weber State guard Davion Berry to an Exhibit 10 contract, reports Blake Murphy of Raptors Republic. Toronto had already reduced its roster count to 15 players on NBA contracts, but the team will add a 16th in Berry to get through the next week of practices. The team has confirmed the move.
Berry, who went undrafted in 2014, has bounced back and forth between the G League and international leagues since then, playing for teams in Italy, South Korea, Greece, and Germany. Most importantly, the 25-year-old’s last G League experience – in 2015/16 – came for the Raptors 905, so Toronto’s G League affiliate still holds his returning rights.
Berry figures to head to the Raptors 905 once the G League season begins, but as Murphy explains, signing him to an Exhibit 10 contract allows Toronto to give the young shooting guard an extra $50K bonus that won’t count against the Raps’ cap.
The Raptors’ roster count is now back up to 18, including two players on two-way contracts.
