Raptors Re-Sign D.J. Carton On Two-Way Contract

After his 10-day contract with the team expired earlier this week, guard D.J. Carton has returned to the Raptors on a two-way deal, the club announced today in a press release.

Carton has spent nearly his entire professional career in the G League since going undrafted out of Marquette in 2021. After one year with the Greensboro Swarm, he has spent the past two seasons with the Iowa Wolves, Minnesota’s NBAGL affiliate.

In 29 games this season for Iowa, Carton averaged 18.6 points, 5.7 assists, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.6 steals in 35.4 minutes per contest, with a strong shooting line of .527/.395/.796.

That performance earned him a call-up to the NBA on a 10-day deal with the Raptors on February 21. He appeared in two games with Toronto during those 10 days, scoring eight points and handing out a pair of assists in 11 minutes of action.

The Raptors opened up a two-way slot on their roster by promoting Javon Freeman-Liberty to a standard contract on Friday night — Markquis Nowell and Jontay Porter are the team’s other two-way players.

Following Carton’s signing, Toronto now has 17 of its 18 total roster spots filled, with one standard spot still available.
