Rawle Alkins is expected to head to training camp with the Raptors this fall, according to Jeremy Woo of SI.com, who reports (via Twitter) that Toronto agreed to sign the Arizona guard to a camp deal.
Alkins, who wasn’t picked on Thursday night, entered the draft after his sophomore season with the Wildcats. In 2017/18, he averaged 13.1 PPG, 4.8 RPG, and 2.5 APG with a shooting line of .432/.359/.724. He was ranked as the 49th-best prospect of the 2018 class on Jonathan Givony’s top-100 list at ESPN.com.
NBA teams are permitted to carry 20 players during the offseason up until the regular season begins, at which point they have to cut their rosters down to 15 (plus two two-way players). While exact terms of Alkins’ agreement with the Raptors aren’t known, he’ll likely receive a small guarantee as a camp invitee and may have a chance to compete for a roster spot during the preseason.
The signing can’t be finalized until after the new league year begins in July.
