Sagaba Konate Signs With Raptors

The Raptors have signed West Virginia center Sagaba Konate, the team announced in an email. Terms of the deal were not released, but it is believed to be an Exhibit 10 contract. The release also confirms the signings of forwards Devin Robinson and Oshae Brissett.

Knee injuries limited Konate to eight games as a junior with the Mountaineers, but he was able to average 13.6 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.8 blocks in about 24 minutes per night. He was on Toronto’s Summer League team, but didn’t see any game action.

Konate is a defensive standout who holds the school record for blocked shots in a career. He earned third team All-Big 12 honors as a sophomore along with a spot on the conference’s All-Defensive Team.

    I like this signing by my Raptors. Sucks that he had to sit out the summer league due to injury. It’ll be fun seeing him compete for the second two-way spot, but if he doesn’t get it I hope he sticks with the 905 and sees the value in developing in the Raptors’ system. Potentially seeing a G-League front court pairing of him and Boucher would just be a block party

      Not to mention, Marc Gasol could really help this young kid develop. He would and could very well be the perfect mentor for Konate…
