JULY 23: The signing is official, the team confirmed in an email.
JULY 20: The Raptors have signed undrafted rookie forward Oshae Brissett, a Toronto native, to an Exhibit 10 deal, reports Blake Murphy of The Athletic. Brissett attended a pre-draft workout with the defending champions back on June 11 before playing with the Clippers during summer league.
Brissett, 21, played two seasons at Syracuse before forgoing his remaining NCAA eligibility and entering the 2019 NBA Draft. While at Syracuse, the 6’8″ Canadian averaged 13.7 PPG, 8.2 RPG, and 1.3 RPG. Brissett’s numbers fell off a little as a sophomore, but he was named to the ACC All-Freshman team alongside fellow rookie and No. 4 overall pick De’Andre Hunter in 2018.
Brissett is the second undrafted free agent to reach a deal with the Raptors this summer after former Ole Miss guard Terence Davis signed a two-year contract earlier this month. However, Brissett appears less likely than Davis to make the 15-man roster and will probably end up as an affiliate player for the Raptors 905.
