Raptors Waive Joe Wieskamp Before Contract Guarantee

The Raptors have waived Joe Wieskamp, Blake Murphy of Sportsnet tweets.

Toronto now has one open roster spot and is $3.96MM below the luxury tax threshold.

The 23-year-old swingman, who signed with Toronto in February, agreed to move the guarantee date for his $1.927MM salary for next season from June 29 to July 18. The Raptors ultimately decided on roster flexibility rather than guaranteeing Wieskamp’s contract.

He only appeared in nine games with Toronto last season and averaged just 5.6 minutes in those appearances. During previous season, he saw action in 29 games off the bench for San Antonio, which drafted him with the No. 41 pick in 2021 out of Iowa.

Wieskamp appeared in four Summer League contests this month and averaged 13.5 points in 23.9 minutes per game. The team’s decision was anticipated, given that the Raptors drafted another wing, Gradey Dick, in the lottery.
