Brissett was on a two-way contract with Toronto in 2019/20 and the team issued him a qualifying offer at season’s end, making him a restricted free agent. As Murphy explains, it’s not clear whether Brissett will accept that QO (putting him on another two-way deal) or work out a new standard contract with the club, but the expectation is that he’ll be sticking around.
As a rookie in 2019/20, Brissett appeared in 19 games for the Raptors, playing mostly garbage-time minutes. The former Syracuse standout averaged 1.9 PPG and 1.4 RPG in 7.1 minutes per contest. In 30 G League games for the Raptors 905, he bumped those numbers to 14.9 PPG and 6.6 RPG in 27.8 MPG.
